A Last Chapter of the Greatest Generation is a work of non-fiction focused on the military life and subsequent career of Frederic A. Stone and was penned by author Judson I Stone. Subtitled ‘The Life and Family of Colonel Frederic A. Stone, M.D. Author, Doctor, Missionary and Friend to Humanity’, the work is a loving tribute to the hard work and commitments of its subject, whose life was filled with acts of kindness and achievements which fulfilled many dreams. We follow Frederic from his initial shaky decision to join the Army in 1941, and from there we see how his passion to help people and discover different facets of life grows and inspires future generations.

Author Judson I Stone presents a concise and loving work here, describing the incredible life of one of the later members of the Greatest Generation, who began their young lives serving their countries during the Second World War. From this fraught world, Frederic is cultivated into a great man, and his many achievements are given due time and organization in the narrative to be discussed and celebrated. I appreciated the author’s attention to detail very much, and he contextualizes the time and conditions of the eras he travels through very well. The overall tone is highly emotive and truly inspiring, looking at the Colonel’s whole life, from his career to his family, his dreams and personal faith in God. Overall, A Last Chapter of the Greatest Generation is a time capsule meant to inspire a new generation with the strength of those who have fought for our freedoms.
