This book I thought was really good The movie Red Tails follows this book really well This book was really interesting to me since I like to read world war II things At the beginning of the book it followed one person and told about how they got to the 332nd wing otherwise known as the Tuskegee airmen After he got to the 332nd he did some training and then was able to fly on their first actual mission The first mission was escorting the bombers to their drop location One person was captured by the Nazis after his plane crashed and one was badly burned after he crashed on the runway coming back from the mission One of the last missions that the book talked about was the mission where they were to escort the bombers for the first leg and the 52nd wing was supposed to take them the rest of the way The 52nd did not show up and the Red Tails stayed with them The Nazis got new jet fighters and lost all of the jet fighters that showed up One pilot flew towards a jet fighter blew the fighter up but took a lot of bullets as he did He later died and crashed the plane At the end of the book the 332nd was honored by the president of the united states and were able to continue to fight The Tuskegee Airmen were able to establish one of the best flying records of world war II 66 airmen died in action All in all this was a very good book and I would recommend it to people if they asked me

Baseball aficionados know John Black Wings ePUB #9734 B Holway as author of books about the Negro Leagues that rescued from obscurity many of the great black players who could not play in the segregated ranks of major league baseball Here Holway sets his sights on another group of heroes the. This book sort of rocked my world As one of the caucasian persuasion born post WWII and raised until high school in a part of the US where black faces were rarely seen I was mostly unaware of the virulent social institutional and personal racism these men faced in the Army Air Force and in 1940s America generally I mean I knew about Jim Crow segregation and all that but only in an intellectual sense Red Tails Black Wings brought American racism home to me and in very visceral fashion If I had had to face the hate filled situations these men did my own response would have lacked their gracefulness and thoughtful patience The book being mostly a series of personal reminiscences of the Tuskegee Airmen strung together with an informative general narrative is absolutely fascinating on a number of levels These guys accomplished amazing things militarily socially personally They were heroes to the nth degree Every American should know their story and by God respect it

Red Tails Black Wings The Men of America's Black Air ForceMen of the Tuskegee experiment the effort to train Red Tails PDFEPUB or black pilots during World War II Many white officers believed the experiment would be a failure because blacks did not have the skills necessary to become pilots But the Tuskegee Airmen proved them wrong and black pilots. The Red Tails ExperienceRed Tails Black Wings written by John B Holway offers a great perspective of how life was for blacks back in the 1800’s and not only at school or at stores but mostly it talks about how hard it was to get into the Air Force and being African American This book is told from the perspective of men that were Tuskegee airmen which were a group of African American men in the Air Force This book talks about their real life experiences getting in and events along the way that led to victory in Europe Holway flashes back to their childhood throughout the book to explain how they got interested in flying The book also tells you about what each of the presidents said about if African Americans should be allowed to fight I found this interesting because you never get to hear what each president had to say on this issueEven though this is a nonfiction book I found this book to be very interesting Not only does it tell us about African Americans being able to fight but it talks about what kind of planes they flew what schools people went to and many other things This book is full of historical facts that may surprise you when you read them If you do not like reading about wars you probably will not like this book too much But all the action really kept me engaged and wanting to find out what was going to happen next All the men that flew a p 40 were called red tails because the tail of the plane was painted red I think that the moral of the story is a great one to learn It is that you should always try your hardest and never give up because the people that made it into the Air Force were the ones that tried their hardest and the African Americans had to try even harder Overall I thought it was a good book but not the best book I have read If you do not like war facts it may not be the best book for you
