Black '41: The West Point Class of 1941 and the American Triumph in World War IIby Bill Yenne
Commemorates the 50th anniversary of the graduation of the West Point class of 1941. These were the officers who, during World War II, commanded our forces on the front lines. It is written by a professional writer of military history and includes interviews with all of the surviving members of that class.
"Black '41 presents quite an interesting account of how one class of West Pointers served their country in both war and peace. Military Academy graduates and all those readers interested in American military history since 1941 should find this to be an especially enjoyable read."—Roger D. Cunningham, Journal of America’s Military Past
