Nalty tells of the heroic deeds and humiliating obstacles confronting black fighting forces and shows how black protest, civil unrest, military manpower needs, war, and peace have interacted over 200 years to create an integrated, yet racially troubled, American military establishment. 25 black-and-white photos.

For the first time, a professional mili tary historian has examined the histo ry of race relations in the U.S. armed forces and detailed the progress made. Nalty combines the perspective of a historian with the analytic sophistica tion of a sociologist. The result is a study that will be as valuable to social scientists seeking institutional case studies as it will be to historians and students. Nalty is strongest in the modern period. He is full of accusa tions of societal and institutional rac ism, but he is equally relentless in fer reting out the day-to-day details of 200 years of interracial relationships. He is to be praised for avoiding the tradi tional anecdotal approach to this com plex subject: uplifting stories of heroic individuals and segregated units. These are used sparingly to lighten an otherwise formal narrative. Highly recommended to academic and larger public collections. Raymond L. Puff er, U.S. Air Force History Prog., Los Angeles
