"I loved this book and all the great memories it captured." --Tom Brokaw
Over Here!, the latest chronicle of the history of New York City by Lorraine B. Diehl--lifetime resident of the Big Apple and author of The Late, Great Pennsylvania Station and Subways--relates the true story of New York City during World War II. From the Brooklyn Naval Yard to Times Square nightclubs, from children's Mickey Mouse gas-masks to victory gardens in Rockefeller Center, Over Here! is a nostalgic portrait of the Greatest Generation and the Empire City. Including anecdotes from famous New Yorkers and visitors such as Angela Lansbury, Walter Cronkite, and Barbara Walters, and richly illustrated with more than 80 period photographs, Over Here! is an inspiring tribute to New York City during the Great War.
