One would expect that Tom Brokaw would offer an excellent reading of this book, a follow-up to his successful GREATEST GENERATION. He's definitely had lots of practice recounting facts. However, this is not a book of facts. Essentially, it is a collection of letters from people responding to his book. As he speaks of memories of lost lovers, lost husbands, and lost fathers, we learn about men and women who made great sacrifices while serving in WWII. The stories are emotional, and Brokaw comes through with appropriate pathos. M.L.C. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
