Solid hardcover. ; "In The Unknown Soldier, Barbeau and Henri have provided an outstandingly well-documented appraisal of the heroic role of the Afro-American combat and service troops; of the obstacles placed in the path of the Afro-American, resulting in a partially hobbled black combat force whose record was excellent in spite of deterrents to still greater achievement; of the willingness of high military officials to sabotage military effectiveness rather than change their racist policies. The authors reveal the persistent demands of the black community for the organization of black combat units and the political pressures operative in the formation of the 92nd and 93rd divisions." - Foreword by Burghardt Turner. ; Ex-Library; xvii, 279 pages.
