Spaceflight began in the 20th century following theoretical and practical breakthroughs by Konstantin Tsiolkovsky and Robert H. Goddard. The Soviet Union took the lead in the post-war Space Race, launching the first satellite, the first man and the first woman into orbit. The United States caught up with, and then passed, their Soviet rivals during the mid-1960s, landing the first man on the Moon in 1969.

If you have read The Tuskegee Airmen: An Illustrated History: 1939-1949 or Tuskegee's Heroes: Featuring the Aviation Art of Roy Lagrone, you have seen the personalities that proved Army Air Force brass wrong about black aviators. Instead, use this book to learn about earlier personalities: Eugene Bullard, J.C. Robinson, and James Peck, who flew before the famous Tuskegee Airmen. Bessie Coleman, who ran an airshow, was black AND female.
Then came the combat debut of the 'Red Tails', and the crucible of air combat.
Read about the drawdown after the war; how the 332nd was shuffled around, opportunities for advancement were limited, and unit cohesion affected. But a debate was raging. Both sides of the issue felt they had proof in the performance of one army unit or another- all rather vague.
However, moves were afoot to integrate; in 1948, Truman moved the process forward by issuing an executive order to integrate the Services. Although it may not have been smooth, the situation improved.
For a wider view of black contributions to the war, see: The Road to Victory: The Untold Story of World War Ii's Red Ball Express,The Buffalo Saga: A Story from World War II U.S. Army 92nd Infantry Division known as the Buffalo Soldiers,Courage Has No Color, The True Story of the Triple Nickles: America's First Black Paratroopers (Junior Library Guild Selection (Candlewick Press)).
Appendices list 332nd pilots credited with victories.

This book has a hard time deciding if it is a scholarly work or a popular narrative. The style attempts to mix close analysis and an engaging storyline. These two elements are incompatible paragraph by paragraph, and bog each other down. The author changes references to major figures' titles, given names, and especially rank, back and forth without order or explanation. It smacks of rushed scholarship.

Despite these flaws, the book tells an important story. It covers a lot of old material on the Tuskeegee Airmen, but offers up some important new aspects: Evolution of Air Force policy on integration and race, and the role of Black Airmen in the Bomber forces. These two themes were largely based on original research and interviews, The general background of the Tuskeegee airmen less so.

In short, this book has some really good new material on racial politics in the US military during and just after World War II. Its coverage of the combat exploits of the all black US fighter squadrons is objective, but nothing new.
