Moore, curator of the world-renowned New York Public Library's Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, has written a thoroughly researched work that is both historical and personal. Based on oral histories, exhaustive research, and family records, Moore's riveting account tells of the black experience in the nation's armed forces during WWII. Thomas Penny's narration is perfect. He comes across as historian, son, soldier, and activist, fluidly changing personas. Penny breathes life into all of the men and women who so courageously fought for their country's freedom, the benefits of which were denied them because of racism.
