Over Here: How the G.I. Bill Transformed the American Dream Over Here: How the G.I. Bill Transformed the American Dream

by Edward Humes

Book Reviews

"The G.I. Bill gave America the chance for 'the pursuit of happiness' -- long promised and long delayed. Edward Humes has splendidly caught the moment before it fades."
--Arthur Penn, film and theater director and G.I. Bill veteran

"Edward Humes has given us a superb description of one of the marvels of American history -- the G.I. Bill, which educated, enlightened, and inspired the veterans of World War II. If we were 'the greatest generation,' the key factor was the mind- and heart-expanding G.I. Bill. It 'transformed the American Dream,' including my own dreams, ambitions, and abilities."
--George McGovern

"A wonderful, personal, and important reminder of how a single law enabled millions of highly motivated and grateful Americans to transform our country. This is a legacy, however, that will not last forever. The G.I. Bill wasn't a loan; it was an equity investment in the future. I hope this book motivates us to do the same."
--Bob Kerrey

"An immensely readable account of one of the smartest, most workable projects our government ever thought up -- the G.I. Bill, which empowered an entire generation -- 'giving' the brave and needy tools for a good life: a house, a college education, genuine hope for the future."
--Carolyn See
