Author: Bernard C. Nalty


From Library Journal:

For the first time, a professional military historian has examined the history of race relations in the U.S. armed forces and detailed the progress made. Nalty combines the perspective of a historian with the analytic sophistication 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 accusations of societal and institutional racism, but he is equally relentless in ferreting out the day-to-day details of 200 years of interracial relationships. He is to be praised for avoiding the traditional anecdotal approach to this complex 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
