Overview

A calm came over Robert Hickman as he was about to leap from his C-47 plane into the inky night sky over Normandy in the predawn hours before June 6, 1944. He just knew that his parachute would safely guide him to the tumultuous earth below.

As he was preparing to jump, Robert let his mind drift ever so briefly to his high school buddies, Sal and Murph, and their substitute teacher, Miss Drury, who had enlisted with him the day after Pearl Harbor.

"Please, God, look after them," he said to nobody in particular in a barely audible whisper. Just two years earlier, they had abruptly quit high school because their country needed them, and now their stories were unfolding to a most unexpected, even miraculous, denouement.

That's How it Goes is the story of four ordinary Americans who were called upon to become extraordinary, like the countless millions of others from their Greatest Generation.
