The Tuskegee Airmen / Theia Lake.

Lake, Theia, (author.).


"The first African American flying unit in the U.S. military were called the Tuskegee Airmen. They trained at the Tuskegee Army Air Field in Alabama and flew more than 1,500 missions. During World War II, these men became some of the most decorated servicemen of the Army Air Forces. In this informative book, readers will learn about all about the Tuskegee Airmen, the missions they accomplished, and the prejudice and discrimination they faced at home. Eye-catching photographs, fascinating sidebars, and a helpful timeline add dimension to the comprehensive text"-- Provided by publisher.
