Description
 
Still segregated in WW1, the U.S. Army was reluctant to use its 93d Division of black soldiers in combat with its own units and instead assigned the divisionís 3 National Guard regiments and 1 draftee regiment to the French Army. The battlefield successes of these African Americans under the French at the height of the German offensives in 1918 turned white expectations of failure upside down. Their bravery and heroism gained the respect of the French and Germans alike and called into question the U.S. Armyís policy of racially segregating its divisions. Here is the full story of their accomplishments. Written from the perspective of the enlisted men and their white and black officers, this book highlights their combat actions. Maps and photos.
