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 Today

“A 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 Observer

“A 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-Gazette

“A 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 Bee
