Format: Hardcover
Here is a book that reads like a screenplay waiting to happen. A book that will make you ask; "Is that the way it really was for some US Army GI's willing to serve and die for thier country?" Read`about the true accounts of the men that fought and died in their segregated tank battallion of the US Army in WWII. Get to know the names of some of the soliders of the 761st and learn about their enemies, tatics, and battle plans for fighting the war against aggression in the Europe and fighting the war against prejudice both in the United States and on the bloody battlefields of WWII. Read about the exploits and heroics of the 761st tank battallion that will both shock you and make you proud of some US Army GI's that stood up to their country and for their country. This book will inspire you to greater goals indeed.

The heroics and heroes described in this book should be made into an inspiring movie for all Americans, in fact, for all human beings, to be proud of.
