Tuskegee Airmen, an Illustrated History: 1939-1949

by Joseph Caver, Jerome Ennels, Daniel Haulman
 
Many documentaries, articles, museum exhibits, books, and movies have now treated what became known as the “Tuskegee Experiment” involving the black pilots who gained fame during World War II as the Tuskegee Airmen. Most of these works have focused on the training of America's first black fighter pilots and their subsequent accomplishments during combat.

Overview

Many documentaries, articles, museum exhibits, books, and movies have now treated what became known as the “Tuskegee Experiment” involving the black pilots who gained fame during World War II as the Tuskegee Airmen. Most of these works have focused on the training of America's first black fighter pilots and their subsequent accomplishments during combat. This publication goes further, using captioned photographs to trace the airmen through the stages of training, deployment, and combat actions in North Africa, Italy, and Germany, in an attractive coffee-table-book format. Included for the first time are depictions of the critical support roles of doctors, nurses, mechanics, navigators, weathermen, parachute riggers, and other personnel, all of whom contributed to the airmen's success, and many of whom went on to help complete the establishment of the 477th Composite Group. The authors have told, in pictures and words, the full story of the Tuskegee Airmen and the environments in which they lived, worked, played, fought, and sometimes died.
