Abstract:

The Tuskegee Airmen participated in the most famous battles of the Italian peninsula, including the invasion of Salerno and of Anzio, the battles of Montecassino and of Rome; and then, in Southern France, the Balkans, and finally into Germany, all the while completing their missions with heroic deeds, and fulfilling the goals inherent in their struggle for the right to fight. Although the hero in the book is the late General Benjamin O. Davis, Jr., the authors also present the stories of other soldiers: those who lost their lives in that tremendous conflict. The battles brought the races together, mixing the blood of all men and women --their lives on the line. Their achievements: Dead or alive, they consecrated their first goal: the attainment of a complete lasting integration of the United States Armed Forces and, secondly, the integration of the entire nation. To think that this achievement was accomplished without typical upheavals wherein large numbers of people are killed. This 5th Edition has been enlarged by more than 300 pages and contains the most complete list of Officers with photographs of each graduating class. It also includes all kinds of information on the Enlisted Tuskegee Airmen who served throughout World War II.
