Part of American Heritage Magazine's Great Minds of American History video series, this documentary takes a look at America during World War II and the subsequent Baby Boom era. Journalist Roger Mudd interviews historian Stephen Ambrose, best-selling author of Citizen Soldiers and Undaunted Courage, about this tenuous time in our country's history. Ambrose provides first-hand accounts and in-depth insights on the events and people of this era. Detailed discussions on President Eisenhower, General MacArthur, Senator McCarthy, and President Nixon are presented, with Ambrose adding personal stories about these men and other prominent figures of this time. Ambrose's research on World War II is very evident as he discusses how our country coped and bonded together during that time of incredible crisis.
