Reviews

"Smart and insightful...an immensely readable book with plenty of modern relevance as today's American military considers who should be able to fight and how... James [is ]an excellent storyteller." --Christian Science Monitor

"As long as inequality persists, this tale of persistence, sacrifice, and triumph will continue to inspire." --Publishers Weekly

"[James] skillfully examines how the Caucasian-dominated military, with a few notable exceptions in the top ranks, treated African-American members as second-class citizens... An inspiring story spanning parts of five centuries as African-Americans pushed back against the powers that be to achieve more-or-less equal treatment inside the military." --Kirkus

"An engaging book." --Library Journal

"Provide[s] important perspective." --Bookpage

"Well-written, well-researched." --History Book Club
