332nd Fighter Group - Tuskegee Airmen by Chris Bucholtz

Book Description

The USAAF's Tuskegee Experiment, designed to prove that African-Americans were not capable of flying combat aircraft, ironically resulted in the creation of one of the USAAF's elite units. Crewed by highly-educated and exceptionally motivated men, the 332nd were able to boast 111 aerial kills, 150 strafing victories and even the sinking of a German destroyer by the war's end. The group were both feared and respected by the Germans, who called them the 'Schwartze Voglemenschen' (Black Birdmen), and revered by others as the 'Black Red-tail Angels', partly because of their distinct red-tailed aircraft, and partly because they never lost a bomber under escort to enemy attack. This book will reveal the true story of the unit who rose above discrimination to achieve elite status.
