Inhaltsangabe: It was an unprecedented opportunity: The United States Air Force announced a training course for Negro airmen to be conducted at Alabama's Tuskegee Institute. John Steward Sloan, Sr., a Kentucky postal worker who dreamed of being a pilot, eagerly submitted his application and was accepted into the program. Thus began a life-changing odyssey for a young man determined to serve his country, prove his mettle and see the world.
For John, his education began as he took his first journey into America's Deep South to endure the rigorous and demanding training on the Tuskegee campus. After completing the course with distinction, he was ready to join the U. S. forces in World War II's European theatre.
Survival of a Tuskegee Airman is the riveting first-person account of his experiences as a decorated airman. He describes each mission with a vivid immediacy that recreates a palpable sense of danger and the adrenaline rush of nerves kicking in under pressure. When his aircraft was shot down, he found himself the only Black man in a large military field hospital, which proved to be a different kind of lesson in survival.
This is an unflinching, compelling account of a little-known chapter in the chronicles of World War II and African-American history. Survival of a Tuskegee Airman reminds us of all the courageous men who fought for a nation that did not treat them all equally.
