Tom Brokaw touched the heart of the nation with his towering
#1 bestseller The Greatest Generation,
a moving tribute to those who gave the world so much—and who left an enduring
legacy of heroism and grace. The Greatest
Generation Speaks was born out of the vast outpouring of letters Brokaw
received from people eager to share their personal memories and experiences of
a momentous time in America’s history.
These letters and reflections cross time, distance, and
generations as they give voice to lives forever changed by war: eighty-year-old
Clarence M. Graham, who recounts his harrowing experience as a soldier captured
by the Japanese—and provides a gripping eyewitness account of the dropping of
the atomic bomb—Patricia Matthews Dorph, a soldier’s daughter who shares the
love letters her parents exchanged during the war, a lasting legacy of passion,
devotion, and enduring love; Rabbi Judah Nadich, the first Jewish chaplain to
serve in the war; Lorraine Davis, a civilian who helped form the Club of ‘44, a
group of wartime wives who still meet today.
From the front lines of battle to the back porches of
beloved hometowns, The Greatest
Generation Speaks brings to life the hopes and dreams of a generation who
fought our most hard-won victories, and whose struggles and sacrifices made our
future possible. Download and start listening now!
