Franklin Tennessee... a Diamond in the Rough
Leonard Isaacs continues to recall many events that occurred in Franklin, Tennessee that he lived and experienced with humor, amazing recall and an entertaining style. This third book covers the 30's and 40's with a particular emphasis on the war years of 1941-1945, from the bombing of Pearl Harbor to the decisive Battle of Midway. Along the way he describes coming out of the Depression and beginning to earn his own money in various jobs, including the High School years. Leonard will give young readers an idea of what many in the 'greatest generation' did to help the country emerge from deep economic trouble to fighting and winning WWII on multiple fronts. Older readers will recall either their experiences or their parents' experiences as this country provided safety and economic prosperity at great personal expense. Recall those bygone days with Leonard - the songs, the radio shows, the rationing and the sacrifices of all. Still, amid tumultuous times, much of small town life continued on with strong social values and good community life.
