Summary, etc.: The stories of individual men and women during the second World War, written as a sequel to The Greatest Generation as a result of the many letters the author received. "They give us new, intensely personal perspectives of a momentous time in our history. They are the voices of a generation that has given so much and wants to share even more. Some of the letters were written from the front during the war, or from families to their loved ones in harm's way in distant places. There were firsthand accounts of battles and poignant reflections on loneliness, exuberant expressions of love and somber accounts of loss. It seems that everyone in that generation has something worthwhile to contribute" [Tom Brokaw] --Book jacket.
