Synopsis by Sally Barber
NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw brings to life his best-selling book The Greatest Generation. In this video of the same name, Brokaw introduces you to men and women who were raised during the difficult years of the Great Depression, who fought for the sake of freedom in World War II and later went on to create a strong nation. These real American heroes tell their stories of tragedy and triumph. Interviewed while in their 70s and 80s, the survivors relate powerfully and dramatically, the meaning of being an American.
