MALVERN, Pa., July 26, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Joseph J. Romano, a professor emeritus of philosophy at Cabrini University in Radnor, Pennsylvania; a doctorate degree holder from Bryn Mawr College; a recipient of two post-doctoral grants from the Carnegie Foundation; and a loving father and grandfather, has completed his new book "REDS: The Second Greatest Generation": a highly potent story of five adolescent boys growing up in a world that deals with societal realities that include bigotry and identity crisis framed during the Great Depression and World War II.

The author presents the reality of a troubled world that challenged these youngsters of immigrant parents.

"The sorrows of the war felt by this younger generation were mostly unnoticed by the adults. They lost uncles and older brothers and neighbors. They stood silently by their parents at funerals for the dead heroes who returned in flag-draped caskets. The boys may have been too young to fight in the war, but they were old enough to know and fear what was happening. … Ernie came to school one day carrying the helmet worn by his uncle Georgie who fought in the infantry in the South Pacific. The helmet had a small hole near the top and a huge jagged hole on the other side where the bullet exited. Ernie's uncle had been rendered unconscious by the exploding shell, but the inner lining of the helmet had allowed enough room at the top to have the bullet pass above his head. Georgie was one of the lucky ones and the boys silently absorbed that fact as they quietly passed the helmet to each other."

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Romano's memorable narrative transpires during the Great Depression and the Second World War, as the youngsters internalize the values they learn as adolescents.
