Who we are, where we’ve been, and where we need to go now, to recapture the American dream Now with a new Foreword by the author. “The best presentation of the challenges facing the country—and the possible solutions—I've ever seen.”—P. J. O’Rourke Tom Brokaw, known and beloved for his landmark work in American journalism and for the New York Times bestsellers The Greatest Generation and Boom!, now turns his attention to the challenges that face America in the new millennium, to offer reflections on how we can restore America’s greatness. Rooted in the values, lessons, and verities of generations past and of his South Dakota upbringing, Brokaw weaves together inspiring stories of Americans who are making a difference and personal stories from his own family history, to engage us in a conversation about our country and to share ideas for how we can revitalize the promise of the American Dream. Inviting us to foster a rebirth of family, community, and civic engagement as profound as the one that helped win World War II, built our postwar prosperity, and ushered in the Civil Rights era, Brokaw traces the exciting, unnerving changes in modern life—in values, education, public service, housing, the Internet, and more—that have transformed our society in the decades since the age of thrift in which he was raised. In offering ideas from Americans who are change agents in their communities, Brokaw gives us a nourishing vision of hopefulness in an age of diminished expectations. NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “Inspiring tales of how people from different walks of life have found ways to be of service to their communities and country.”—Walter Isaacson

A seventeen-year-old who enlisted in the army in 1941 writes to describe the Bataan Death March. Other members of the greatest generation describe their war — in such historic episodes as Guadalcanal, the D-Day invasion, the Battle of the Bulge, and Midway — as well as their life on the home front. In this beautiful American family album of stories, reflections, memorabilia, and photographs, history comes alive and is preserved, in people’s own words and through photographs and time lines that commemorate important dates and events. Starting with the Depression and Pearl Harbor, on through the war in Europe and the Pacific, this unusual book preserves a people’s rich historical heritage and the legacy of the heroism of a nation.

‘De verloren boordschutter vertelt het spannende verhaal van een opmerkelijke Amerikaan, die boven bezet gebied werd neergehaald tijdens WO II en verbazingwekkend genoeg zes maanden lang de nazi’s een stap voor was [...] Een ijzingwekkend, indrukwekkend verhaal dat je niet wilt missen.’ – Alex Kershaw, New York Times-bestsellerauteur van De bevrijder De in de Bronx geboren Arthur Meyerowitz was in 1943 op zijn tweede missie toen het gevechtsvliegtuig waar hij in zat boven Frankrijk werd neergeschoten. Hij was een van de twee mannen in de B-24 Liberator die de crash overleefde en niet gelijk gevangen werd genomen. Na uit het vliegtuigwrak gevlucht te zijn, klopte Meyerowitz aan bij een afgelegen boerderij waar hij door de bewoners snel binnen werd gelaten. Gelukkig voor hem had zijn gastheer niet alleen een afkeer van nazi’s, maar had hij ook nauwe banden met de Franse verzetsgroep Morhange en diens oprichter, Marcel Taillandier. Meyerowitz ontwikkelde een hechte vriendschap met hem, en de verzetsleider zorgde ervoor dat Meyerowitz via verschillende safehouses naar Zuid-Frankrijk werd gebracht en zo uit handen van de Gestapo bleef. De vermiste boordschutter is gebaseerd op recent vrijgegeven materiaal, exclusieve interviews en uitvoerig onderzoek naar het Franse verzet, en vertelt het spannende en enerverende verhaal van Meyerowitz’ benarde periode in Toulouse – waar hij zich voor moest doen als doofstomme en samenwerkte met de eveneens neergehaalde Britse piloot Richard Frank Wharton Cleaver om uit handen van de nazi’s te blijven. Daarnaast lezen we over zijn huiveringwekkende weg naar vrijheid, met een hachelijke torek over de Pyreneeën en de tocht op een vissersboot terwijl er Duitse onderzeeërs rondvoeren en Duitse gevechtsvliegtuigen boven hem vlogen. Het boek bevat foto’s en plattegronden en is een persoonlijk en fascinerend verhaal over onderduiken en verzetshelden. Het geeft daarnaast niet alleen een levensecht verslag van taaiheid, doorzettingsvermogen en ontsnappen tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog, maar is vanwege het onlangs vrijgegeven materiaal een zeer waardevol oorlogsdocument.
