9780828320771: Tuskegee Airmen: The Men Who Changed a Nation

In publishing this book in 1955, Charles Francis did not know that his title, The Tuskegee Airmen, was to launch a revolution of awareness among America's black pilots. Now in its fourth edition, the book contains about 100 original photographs, 120 pages of facts, 26 Index pages, and as complete a listing of the original graduading classes as can be found in other publications.

About the Author:

Charles E. Francis, a native of Maryland, received a Bachelor of Arts in Education and a Master's in American History from Howard University. Inducted into the Army Air Corps, he received his basic training in Columbus, Mississippi. He was assigned to Fort Myers, Florida to help organize the newly constructed Buckingham Army Air Forces Flexible Gunnery School. In 1944, he went to Tuskegee, where he observed and understood the significance and meaning of the Tuskegee revolution. Married to Frances H. Lewis, the late Mr and Mrs Francis leave behind two children and three grandchildren: David Westbrook, April Francis, and Charles Francis III.

Adolph Caso has degrees from Northeastern and Harvard University; a retired Colonel USAR, he is the author of 14 books, including the The Straw Obelisk, a post World War II novel, and We, the People--Formative Documents of America's Democracy.
