The Black Sabre Chronicles, detailing the huge contributions that African Americans have made to the military throughout American history, concludes with Sword of Valor.
Lieutenant Argonne Sharps is the fifth generation of the Sharps, a military family which has fought America’s wars for 130 years.
She is a West Pointer and the only black female pilot in the 101st Airborne "Screaming Eagles" division.
Flying a Kiowa reconnaissance helicopter in the Persian Gulf War, Lt. Sharps is thrown into a perilous assignment: to extract a Special Forces officer Jerome Moody who has parachuted into enemy territory to meet with insurgents fighting Saddam Hussein's Iraqi forces.
Tom Willard’s intimate knowledge of combat -- earned in Vietnam -- gives Sword of Valor, final book in the "Black Sabre Chronicles," a special ring of authenticity as the brief, high-tech, Gulf War unfolds and the Sharps family history of warfare unfolds with it.
