"Their story of overcoming the odds at a time when most believed black performed poorly in combat is told by Frank E. Roberts, who has been researching the subject for years. While acknowledging the many problems encountered by the 93d, he focuses on the many triumphs of these tenacious soliders as they fought both the enemy and the prejudices of their fellow Americans."--BOOK JACKET.
