The Archbishop Wore Combat BootsProduct Code: BK2153
Whether parachuting behind enemy lines...jumping into a Secret Service sedan for a White House meeting with JFK...or navigating the swirling flood waters of a hurricane...New Orleans' Archbishop Philip Hannan knew only one way to operate: totally committed and full speed ahead!
The embodiment of "The Greatest Generation," Archbishop Hannan's intellect, wit, generosity, and work ethic were unparalleled when fighting for what he believed in: the dangers of fascism, the preservation of the Faith, the inherent, if unforeseen, pitfalls in advising politicians on Church doctrine.
Grab a front row seat on this extraordinary man's always fascinating, ever-humbling journey as he makes his mark on the pivotal events of the 20th century--the second World War, the Kennedy presidency, Vatican II, the integration of the South, Hurricane Katrina.
Go behind the scenes as Archbishop Philip Hannan--at age 97, still the quintessential priest and American--details the events, pressures, decisions, and emotions of his one-of-a-kind experiences...proving, once again, the impact that one human being can have on history.
