In The Black Panthers: A Story of Race, War, and Courage-the 761st Tank Battalion in World War II, historian Gina M. DiNicolo tells the full and unvarnished history of this important American fighting force. Relying on extensive archival research, including documents not consulted in previous accounts and interviews with surviving soldiers and family members. The author describes the unit—its training, deployment, combat, and notably its men, such as Sergeant Ruben Rivers, one of only seven African American men awarded the Medal of Honor for World War II heroism. The professionalism, dedication, and courage of the 761st endures.
