The Life Of DeSoto

the very first DeSoto

There is no doubt that the Greatest Generation shaped the way we think about society and the way things used to be- their deep sense of community, patriotism, and respect sometimes seems to be a thing of the past. Perhaps that’s why we idolize the way they lived-the music, the old Coca-Cola bottle, the dancing…the cars. While the young men were fighting in “The War,” as so many veterans still say, the women anxiously awaited their return. The jubilee that followed the end of World War II, when combined with the booming economy led to great innovations and some of the best story lines for the love stories movie producers can hardly depict fast enough, it seems.
