What if FDR's New Deal had ended the Great Depression in 1933, allowing the Greatest Generation to avoid all that character-building hardship?

"In this book, Tom Brokaw goes out into America, to ... America's citizen heroes and heroines who came of age during the Great Depression and the Second World War and went on to build modern America. This generation was united not only by a common purpose, but also by common values — duty, honor, economy, courage, service, love of family and country, and above all, responsibility for oneself."

— Publisher's promotion for The Greatest Generation by Tom Brokaw
