Courage Has No Color, The True Story of the Triple Nickles
America’s First Black Paratroopers

author: Tanya Stone

World War II is raging, and thousands of American soldiers are fighting overseas against the injustices brought on by Hitler. Back on the home front, discrimination against African Americans plays out as much on Main Street as in the military. Tanya Lee Stone examines the little-known history of the Triple Nickles, America’s first black paratroopers, who fought in an attack on the American West by the Japanese. The 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion, in the words of First Sergeant Walter Morris, "proved that the color of a man had nothing to do with his ability."

"An exceptionally well-researched, lovingly crafted, and imporAmerican heroes." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
