Summary
In the early hours of June 6, 1944, the 320th Barrage Balloon Battalion, a unit of African-American soldiers, landed on the beaches of France. Their orders were to man a curtain of armed balloons meant to deter enemy aircraft. One member of the 320th would be nominated for the Medal of Honor, an award he would never receive. Drawing on newly uncovered military records and dozens of original interviews with surviving members of the 320th and their families, Linda Hervieux tells the story of these heroic men charged with an extraordinary mission, whose contributions to one of the most celebrated events in modern history have been overlooked
Summary
Reveals the story of the 320th Barrage Balloon Battalion, discussing how the all Black battalion faced prejudice both at home and at war due to Jim Crow laws that made them second class citizens, and allowed their crucial contributions to the D-Day invasion go unnoticed
