“It is because of men like these, who fought for our Nation at a time when, because of their skin color, they were not afforded equal rights, that I could be a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel. My success was enabled by their sacrifices. This book is a must-read and… it blessed my heart.”—Lieutenant Colonel Allen B. West, US Army, (Retired), former Congressman
“The Lost Eleven is an incredible account of the unheralded patriotism exhibited by African-American GIs during WWII... The story of the Eleven should be a reminder to all Americans that the values of duty, honor and service are not reserved to any one race, class or ethnicity.”—Jim Gerlach, former Congressman
“The personal stories of the African-American soldiers provide a lens through which the reader can gain an understanding of the unique contributions and sacrifices made by African Americans in defense of our Nation. After you’ve read it, pass it on… your friends and family will thank you.”—General Edward A. Rice, Jr, US Air Force, (Retired)
“The Lost Eleven writes into history the forgotten African-American men who fought courageously in the Battle of the Bulge despite the segregation and racism they experienced… It is a book that should be read by all because it speaks to the human spirit.”—Kara Tucina Olidge, PhD, Executive Director, Amistad Research Center at Tulane University

I often wonder how she stumbled on to some of those off-beat sources. In her books, she also ends with a section to tell readers what happened to the people mentioned in the book. I find that informative.
I especially like The Lost Eleven, even with the sad ending.
