Greatest Generation Speaks
This month I began reading The Greatest Generation Speaks by Tom Brokaw as well as doing some web research regarding the history of the 12th Armored Division during WWII....all as background for my next novel which is set in the 1950's. My parents were of this great generation and were influenced by what they experienced during those war years and the Great Depression. I suppose that many of you are like me in that you would like to have your parents here today so you could better talk about their experiences...my father passed almost 40 years ago and my mother almost 20. I hope my research and own observations can adequately reflect their struggles and triumphs in my current effort.
