I listened to the book on CD and I'm now ordering the hard copy. You're back in time with this author as he travels across American during WWII. It's a brilliant time capsule.

Alistair Cooke gives you a clear picture of American life, emotion, strife, and pride in every corner of the U.S. I was convinced I lived during the war years thanks to his descriptions and interviews of the common people. One of the best books on U.S. History, and yet written by one from the UK.
