Overview

As the veterans of World War II dwindle, their stories have become valuable to a country in danger of losing the ideals that arose from the Depression and the war. Depression, War, Disability Be Damned is the memoir of one member of the "greatest generation." Thomas J. Lee's Depression-era childhood in Indiana placed value not on money or social hierarchy, but on integrity, hard work, and faith in God. Lee drew heavily on that faith during the war, when his battle wounds resulted in three years of hospitalization and the amputation of his leg a year after discharge from the army. He was challenged not only by lifelong disability, but with the proving that he was still a man of ability and worth. Lee's emotional story seems hopeless at times, yet the sheer force of his strong faith carries the reader through as surely as it carried him. His successes―professionally as an educator and personally as a husband and father―are stirring testaments to the triumph of the human spirit.
