They've been called the "Greatest Generation" - those Americans who survived the Depression only to face the horrors of global war. There is little to challenge the "greatness" of the generation that lived for so many years with so little and then accepted the need to give so much. This is the story of one small-town family among millions in America who fought two wars from 1942 to the end of 1945: one on the battlefields, the other on the home front. They gave up their boys to the harsh realities of war while at the same time sacrificing the few luxuries of life that the poor and middle class could afford - anything that was required to support their fathers, sons and brothers in uniform was embraced in a spirit of patriotism America had perhaps never seen before and may never experience again. And it is the story of an entire nation that lived in terror and anxiety for four long years, and whose people shed a trillion tears. People like the Hughes' of Wethersfield, Connecticut, one of the millions who hung Blue Star Banners in their windows.
