Description
What did it take to be a paratrooper in World War II? Specialized training, extreme physical fitness, courage, and -- until the 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion was formed - white skin. In 1943, Americans were fighting World War II to keep the world safe from tyranny, yet at home, white people had rights that black people did not. What is courage? Perhaps it is being ready to fight for your nation even when your nation won't fight for you.
