Summary
What did it take to be a paratrooper in World War II? Specialized training, extreme physical fitness, courage, and - until the 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion (the Triple Nickles) was formed - white skin. It is 1943. Americans are overseas fighting World War II to help keep the world safe from Adolf Hitler's tyranny, safe from injustice, safe from discrimination. Yet right here at home, people with white skin have rights that people with black skin do not. What is courage? What is strength? Perhaps it is being ready to fight for your nation even when your nation isn't ready to fight for you. Front matter includes a foreword by Ashley Bryan. Back matter includes an author's note, an appendix, a time line, source notes, and a bibliography
