 Black Soldier, White Army: The 24th Infantry Regiment in Korea PDF Text fb2 book

and well-prepared opponent. In addition to the problems other regiments faced in Korea, the 24th Infantry also had to overcome the effects of racial prejudice. Ultimately the soldiers of the regiment, despite steadfast courage on the part of many, paid the price on the battlefield for the attitudes and misguided policies of the Army and their nation. Several previously published histories have discussed what happened to the 24th Infantry. This book tells why it happened. In doing so, it offers important lessons for today’s Army.

We must ensure that the injustices and misfortunes that befell the 24th never occur again.
