This book is full of captivating bits of history, wonderful personal stories, and a peek into a generation that is disappearing day by day. It is never dull and Jane Mersky Leder moves you quickly through the history with a confident and engaging writing style. Pick this book up and take a look at what you don¿t already know about World War II and the Greatest Generation.
