The Time Of My Life by Tom Erwin
An Autobiography from the Greatest Generation

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


"This trip through time takes us on a journey from the day to day struggle to survive on a Louisiana farm through his teenage years growing up in prewar New Orleans, a three year tour of duty in the South Pacific during World War II, the postwar search for a new beginning, a forty year career in Radio and Television Broadcasting, and finally, retirement.
It is kind of a “rags to riches” story, running the gamut from abject poverty to traveling the world over, rubbing shoulders with the highest of the high, and the richest of the rich.
“The Time of My Life” is a personal history of one member of “The Greatest Generation.”  That group of Americans who, without coercion and no thought of personal gain except freedom, dropped all tasks at hand, took up arms, fought and won the greatest of all wars, and returned hope and freedom to a chaotic world."
