Description: Rishell redresses the substandard reputation of the 24th that was perpetrated by the press and many historians. His notes reveal a story of combat that differs little from that of white units, his men behaving no better or worse than anyone else while facing the discrimination of their own country and military in addition to military conflict. An interesting account of the relationship between a white platoon leader and black troops in a still segregated army.
A very good copy, in mylar covered dust jacket.
