Brothers in Arms: The Courageous Story of WW II's 761st "Black Panthers"

by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

New York Times Bestseller

A powerful wartime saga in the bestselling tradition of Ghost Soldiers and Flags of Our Fathers, Brothers in Arms recounts the extraordinary story of the 761st Battalion, the first all-black tank battalion to seem combat in World War II. The 761st withstood segregation and lynchings at home and the fierce German counteroffensive in the Battle of the Bulge to emerge as one of the most highly decorated units in World War II.

"I believe it is time for America to meet the men of the 761st, common men who grew to become heroes, black men who fought for a country that often hated them, stalwart men who overcame social injustice to become men of colorblind valor. This first-of-its-kind book will … help them take their place as members of the greatest generation." --Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
