Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
An update of the 2004 edition, this series volume incorporates revisions of 15 of the nearly 150 profiles of African Americans with distinctive military service. Reef (Africans in America) offers an absorbing subject introduction, sparkling with detail and insight. The alphabetically arranged profiles often run several pages; narrate background, ranks, and accomplishments; and conclude with an impressive further reading list. The photos in the profiles add another layer of subject familiarity. A fitting accompaniment to Gail Buckley and David Halberstam's 2002 American Patriots and Robert Edgerton's 2002 Hidden Heroism.
