Synopsis

Victory and defeat, love and loss are the prevalent realities of Letters from the Greatest Generation, a remarkable and frank collection of World War II letters penned by American men and women serving overseas. Here, the hopes and dreams of the greatest generation fill each page, and their voices ring loud and clear. Its all part of the game. But its bloody and rough, wrote one soldier to his wife. Wearing two stripes now and proud as an old cat with five kittens, marked another. Yet, as many countries rejoiced on V-E Day, soldiers were too tired and sad to celebrate. While visiting a German concentration camp, one man wrote, I dont like Army life but Im glad we are here to stop these atrocities. True to the everyday thoughts of these fighters, this collection of letters can be as amusing as it is worrying. As one soldier noted, I know lice dont crawl so I figured they were fleas. A fitting tribute to all veterans, this book is one every American should own.
