Definitely worth reading...
When I picked this up I was a little worried the author would focus on the discrimination against blacks during WWII. While this fact is recognized and discussed in the book, my worries were quickly put to rest as the author focuses more on the heroics and accomplishments of this unit in war. These brave men fought hard for our country and were often unappreciated. As a unit they accomplished far more than was expected of them and far more than they were given credit for (until much later). Many of these brave men were killed in action fighting for our freedom and should never be forgotten. The only reason I gave it 4 rather than 5 stars is because there are a few spots in the book where the author could have gotten into more detail. However, that being said this is a very good book and I recommend it for any reader of WWII literature.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Heroism has no color
Brothers in Arms presented a compelling story about men in combat. The book was well written & researched & presentation was enthralling. THese men had it tough in trainging but even tougher in combat. Story demonstrates heroism has no color barrier. THe soldiers were brave 'brothers' fighting a common foe-the Nazis. Presents a compelling reason for integration of blacks in military, better late than never.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
