Review: Set in the 1940s, this documentation of America's first black paratroopers is dynamic and thorough. With original black and white pictures, this epic is told with direct quotes and research in time order. Just knowing that these brave men had to practice their skill after the "official" white paratroopers finished their daily routines, testifies the strength and commitment of these patriotic soldiers. That their skills were delayed time after time shows how deeply embedded the racial separation was in the armed forces.
