    Book details


A powerful wartime saga in the bestselling tradition of Flags of Our Fathers, Brothers in Arms recounts the extraordinary story of the 761st Tank Battalion, the first all-black armored unit to see combat in World War II.

A carefully researched and engrossing account that paints the individual dramas of the tankmen against the backdrop of the war . . . A fine tribute to these unsung heroes and a valuable addition to the literature on African American service in World War II. Washington Post Book World More than a combat story or a segregated version of Stephen Ambrose's Band of Brothers. It's also the story of how black soldiers had to fight (literally and figuratively) for the right to fight the Germans. USA TodayA wholly different perspective on the greatest generation. People (Critic's Choice)A brilliant and moving narrative that through its imagery helps the reader appreciate the hardness of battle. Charlotte ObserverA slam dunk . . . Well written, well researched and an excellent read . . . Abdul-Jabbar does an incredible job of weaving [the personal stories] into the context of the war as it unfolded. Pittsburgh Post-GazetteA touching profile of men who fought overt and subtle racism for the chance to prove their mettle, and a poignant reminder of the unreasonable prejudices of that era that almost kept them on the sidelines. Sacramento BeeAn inspirational, moving account of courage and comradeship on the part of exceptional men. Military HistoryNot only an exciting, informative military history for the general reader but also a revealing and moving record of racism in America s past. Houston Chronicle""A carefully researched and engrossing account that paints the individual dramas of the tankmen against the backdrop of the war . . . A fine tribute to these unsung heroes and a valuable addition to the literature on African American service in World War II." --Washington Post Book World

    Nicely written, with not too much harping on about racial injustice, a nice read well researched, good stuff.
