It was known as the Good War and gave birth to what became known as the greatest generation. Of course we’re talking about WWII. The American involvement in WWII is chronicled in Ken Burns’ latest documentary, The War which will debut on PBS September 23rd. Joining Marc this hour is historian, biographer and winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award Geoffrey C. Ward.
Ward wrote the narrative and companion book The War: An Intimate History, 1941-1945 for the Ken Burns documentary which some are calling his best work.
