Andreas Stepanavich: The Men and Women of a Forgotten Generation

No doubt our 20th Century is the most remarkable in human history, unparalleled for its rate of technological advances and scientific creations. What makes this 20th Century so extraordinary is that it began in the horse-and-buggy age, and, before the century was out, put man on the moon.

In this age of technology, we all want the credit, the praise, the glory, but least we forget, our fathers and our fathers’ fathers were the real inventors, the real creators.

They fought the First War, reveled in the Roaring Twenties, landed in a depression, picked themselves up by the bootstraps, only to find themselves in World War ll. That didn’t stop them.

Still, always inventing, always discovering, always developing.

These were the searching minds that opened up this whole new world that led to a technology, a technology without bounds, to which there is no end. Who were they? Not university trained, not scientists, they were an immigrant society, workers, laborers, inventors, thinkers, all who wanted a better world.

This is the biography of that century, the forgotten century, as seen through the eyes of one man–Andreas Stepanavich.

    “Andreas Stepanavich: The Men and Women of a Forgotten Generation” is a marvelous work of love where the author pays homage to his father, an ordinary man with extraordinary love for his family and country. Like an Indian movie, it takes us on the journey of Andreas’ (aka “Pete”) life through generations, but leaves out the parts where newly married couples sing Hindu love songs while standing on their marriage bed. It’s about deep friendships, loyalties and betrayals, against the panorama of the historical events of the 20th Century. As I was reading, I thought this could be a great history text for junior high or high school students. It personalizes historical events and teaches you the difference between a hobo and a tramp. Labor relations and politics are discussed through the unique visions of the characters, but there is no preaching; the ultimate decision regarding what to think is left with the reader. Above all, Harold Stephens is a consummate observer of people, their local environment and the greater world they live in. If you’re looking for cheap gossip or things to demonize, look elsewhere. Many things in this book had a ring of familiarity but many more were new to me. He did a great job of reviving the images and the language of his father’s “Forgotten Generation.” I highly recommend it
