Description
Many black soldiers serving in the U.S. Army during World War II were hopeful that they might make permanent gains as a result of their military service and their willingness to defend their country. They were soon disabused of such illusions. Taps for a Jim Crow Army is a powerful collection of letters written by black soldiers in the 1940s to various government and nongovernment officials. In these letters, the soldiers expressed their disillusionment, rage, and anguish over the discrimination and segregation they experienced in the Army.
