DutyA Father His Son and the Man Who Won the WarThat he never fully understood before Duty is the story of three lives connected by history proximity and blood; indeed it is many stories intimate and achingly personal as well as deeply historic In one soldier's memory of a mission that transformed the world and in a son's last attempt to grasp his father's ingrained sense of honor and duty lies a powerful tribute to the ordinary heroes of an extraordinary time in American lifeWhat Greene came away with is found history and found poetry a profoundly moving work that offers a vividly new perspective on responsibility empathy and love It is an exploration of and response to the concept of duty as it once was and always should be uiet and from the heart On every page you can hear the whisper of a generation and its children bidding each other farewell..

    review ä DutyA Father His Son and the Man Who Won the War DutyA Father His Son and the Man Who Won the WarThis book has so much to offer that everyone should read it It's about the relationship between a veteran of World War II and his son the author Bob Greene and at the same time it's about Paul Tibbets who piloted the Enola Gay to Hiroshima and dropped the atomic bomb And it's about the relationship the author built with Paul Tibbets It's a powerful look at what Tom Brokaw called The Greatest Generation I'm so glad I read it

    review ä DutyA Father His Son and the Man Who Won the War DutyA Father His Son and the Man Who Won the WarI had time than I'd like to read this past weekend read this book The first 13 didn't really pull me in but after that it did The book is a first hand look by Greene at his father's death with whom he'd never communicated well His father defined much of his life by his experience in WWII While unimpressed by most people Greene's father held the heroes of WWII in very high esteem especially Paul Tibbets the man who assembled led the team that delivered the atomic bombs to Japan He also was the pilot for the first bomb the one dropped on Hiroshima Young Greene meets Tibbets in learning his story learns about his father than he'd ever known beforeThe story is several entwined well done We learn about both Greenes their relationships history We also learn about the men that fought in WWII especially Tibbets a very

    review ä DutyA Father His Son and the Man Who Won the War DutyA Father His Son and the Man Who Won the WarI think that this could have been better The layout was disjointed and at times it felt like the author was using General Tibbits as a therapist to work out his daddy issues This book it touted as a story about a son his father and the man who stopped WWII For me it was a son asking

    review ä DutyA Father His Son and the Man Who Won the War DutyA Father His Son and the Man Who Won the WarAn easy to read book written by a well respected journalist Bob Greene On the surface the story is about the journalist's interview with Paul Tibbets the pilot of the Enola Gay and his interaction with some of the flight's crew The surviving crew members have lived into their 70's and 80's and reflect on the past and evaluate the present The topic of whether the atomic bombing of Hiroshima was justified ethically or practically is addressed throughoutHowever the book runs a parallel storyline the relationship of the author with his father also a WWII veteran Thus there is much reflection on the father son relationship I believe the most striking passages in the book was the attendance of the Enola Gay crew survivors at a Japanese stage show in Branson MO One cannot overlook the irony of it all

    review ä DutyA Father His Son and the Man Who Won the War DutyA Father His Son and the Man Who Won the WarI wanted to read a book about Paul Tibbets so I grabbed this book I was disapointed at first when I realized the book was only half about Tibbets and half the book is about the authors father and his role in the war What was initially a disappointment turned out to make this a better story I loved both sotries and how they pieced together I'm guilty of reading about the famous people from the war and forgetting that everybody who severed played their role
