Tom Brokaw called them The Greatest Generation, these young warriors returning from the battles in Europe and the Pacific. This is a fictional account of how they succeeded.

They were the young innocents who left their farms, their small towns and big cities to engage in the most devastating war the world has ever seen. A war that would forever change their lives, as it would the world, and, most of all, the United States.

Perpetuation is the story of how three families, specifically their three sons and their friends, made the transition from their Irish Catholic roots in Astoria, New York, to the battlefields of Europe and then home to the uncertainty of civilian life in the aftermath of this terrible war.

Three childhood comrades, Mike McCann, Tom Finn and John Kelly, along with their families and friends, provide an interwoven story of love, hate, danger and, most of all, the passion of people striving to succeed in a post-war environment.
