Reviews
"significant"--MultiCultural Review; "investigates the reasons why no African American soldiers were awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor in World War II"--C&RL News; "careful investigation"--Washington Times; "this explosive and highly recommended book is well worth reading"--Air Power History; "examines the vagaries of the nomination process for the Medal of Honor in Europe, the Mediterranean and the Pacific, and highlights cases where exceptional bravery on the part of black combatants might have warranted higher commendation"--American Studies.
