Captain Jeremiah Jackson of the 332nd fighter squadron and his fellow black officers suffered the most egregious and despicable racial aspersions from the white military, but continued to fulfill their commitment to their country and, more importantly, to themselves.The Tuskegee Airmen were shunned and ridiculed by the Chiefs of Staff as being unworthy of training in the complex aircraft of Army Air Force. After proving their flying ability and courage, the group was still refused admission to the white officers facilities.Ride along in the bloody skies of Europe as Jackson and his comrades fight two opponents: the German Luftwaffe and the white military establishment. With at least a chance of success with the former, the latter will still prove elusive. An effort to probe the minds of black men whose only desire was to serve their country and prove their self-worth is a journey worth taking.Captain Jackson is about to embark on the most important bomber support mission of his life . . .
