The role of African Americans in World War II is recounted through the experiences of America’s first black paratroopers, the 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion (Triple Nickels). The enlisted black soldiers fight discrimination at home, segregation in the military, and injustice abroad

This was a fascinating book detailing the difficulties African American's faced during World War II. This book has quotes from men who served as well as pictures of them training and serving. Very important book detailing the racism our soldiers faced while trying to fight a war against prejudices abroad. ( )

The Triple Nickles is the nickname of the 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion, an African American airborne infantry unit formed during World War II. By the time the unit was formed and completed its training, the war in Europe was winding down. The unit instead contributed to the war in the Pacific--without leaving the borders of the United States. The Japanese had used parachutes to send incendiaries into the West Coast of the United States. The 555th received additional training as smoke jumpers and they joined the Forest Service in fighting fires in the summer of 1945. Shortly after the war, the unit was absorbed into the 82nd Airborne Division.

This is as much a history of the integration of the U.S. army as it is a history of the 555th's World War II exploits. Since the Triple Nickles barely saw action in World War II, this book will be of more interest to readers with an interest in African American military history and the integration of the armed forces.
