Description

This book covers the history of African American soldiers, beginning with the American Civil War and the Plains Wars, when they were nicknamed ‘Buffalo Soldiers’. It then examines their role during the age of ‘American Imperialism,’ before distinguishing themselves in the trenches of World War I. Finally, it examines their participation in World War II, where almost half a million African Americans fought for their country, and the desegregation of the armed forces that followed.
