Fighting for America
Black Soldiers--the Unsung Heroes of World War IIUnknown - 2005
"The African-American contribution to winning World War II has never been celebrated as profoundly as in Fighting for America. In this inspirational tribute, the essential part played by black servicemen and servicewomen in that cataclysmic conflict is brought home to twenty-first-century readers." "Here are letters, photographs, oral histories, and rare documents, collected by historian Christopher Paul Moore, himself the son of two black WWII veterans. Interweaving his family history with that of his people and nation, Moore has created an unforgettable tapestry of sacrifice, fortitude, and courage."--BOOK JACKET.
