Segregated Skies: All-Black Combat Squadrons of World War II - Stanley Sandler This is a wonderful book which sheds much needed light on an aspect of the Second World War that has either been overlooked or marginalized for much too long -- the contributions made by African Americans who served in the U.S. Army Air Force (USAAF) from 1941 to 1945.

Herein the reader will become acquainted with the history of the 99th Pursuit Squadron, the 332nd Fighter Group, and the 477th Composite Group of the USAAF. Taken together, these units constituted the Tuskegee Airmen.
