The paper relates that Brokaw's second volume of 1999, "The Greatest Generation Speaks" is really an account of how his 1998 publication was produced ("The Greatest Generation"). the paper relates that like the first, it stresses values of the generation, what was produced in interviews or via correspondence.

From the Paper:

"Tom Brokaw (B.1940) first published, "The Greatest Generation", in 1998 and it caused an immediate sensation when it appeared in the United States as an effort describing favorably a generation that was starting to fade from American society. In 1984, the author was an accomplished journalist when he went to Normandy to prepare an NBC documentary on the 40th anniversary of World War II's D-Day. He was able to walk the northwestern French beach with returning veterans of the Normandy Landing and hear their comments on events that had shaped not just their youth but their subsequent lives."
