This moving and revealing account of the road to racial equality in the military evokes the heroic struggle of African Americans to become full citizens by risking their lives and dying for their country.

African Americans fought bravely in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Civil War (more than 37,000 died during that bloody struggle to end slavery), World Wars I and II, the Korean War, and Vietnam. It was not until Desert Storm that black men and women reached every rank in the armed services.
