Recent Interview on WW2-TV Discussing My Book Immortal Valor

Privileged to be a second-time guest on WW2-TV this past week the superb history channel on Youtube. Check out my discussion with Paul Woodadge on my book Immortal Valor, now out in paperback. 

The remarkable story of the seven African American soldiers ultimately awarded the World War II Medal of Honor, and the 50-year campaign to deny them their recognition. 

In 1945, when Congress began reviewing the record of the most conspicuous acts of courage by American soldiers during World War II, they recommended awarding the Medal of Honor to 432 recipients. Despite the fact that more than one million African-Americans served, not a single Black soldier received the Medal of Honor. The omission remained on the record for over four decades.
