About the Author:

Robert L. Allen is the author of The Port Chicago Mutiny (Amistad 1993) and co-editor of Brotherman (35,000 hc net), which won the American Book Award. Allen is a professor of African American and Ethnic Studies at the University of California at Berkeley and is an editor of The Black Scholar. He lives in San Francisco, CA.

From Library Journal:

Allen sifts through the carnage of what he calls "the worst home-front disaster of World War II"--the July 17, 1944 explosion at the Navy's Port Chicago ammunition base just north of San Francisco that killed 320 men, 202 of whom were black ammunition loaders. In the aftermath, the 258 survivors refused to continue loading munitions, and 50 were charged with mutiny and court-martialed. Allen, a sociologist and journalist, uses interviews and analysis of the conditions and trials to defend the mutineers--all of whom were black. The case he builds indicts the nation and the segregated Navy for relegating blacks to loading duty without the proper training and safeguards. Scholars may cavil about the lack of reference notes and the expansive argument, but the clear and chilling story highly recommends itself for Afro-American, legal, and military collections.
