Details

Willing Patriots tells the story of Black Americans who served in the U.S. Army in the First World War.

Additionally the work contains an exhaustive bibliography of primary and secondary references for each unit informing the reader of sources for further study lavishly illustrated with nearly 300 detailed color and war-era photographs of these valorous men.
