Ethnic and Racial Minorities in the U.S. Military [2 Volumes]


"Ethnic and Racial Minorities in the U.S. Military: An Encyclopedia" is unique in its coverage of nearly all major ethnic and racial minority groups, as opposed to reference works that have focused only on individual ethnic or racial minority groups. It acknowledges the military contributions of African Americans, Arabic Americans, Asian Americans, French Americans, German Americans, Hispanic Americans, Irish Americans, Italian Americans, Jewish Americans, and Native Americans.

Organized by ethnic and racial groups, this timely work highlights the individuals and events that have shaped the experience of minorities in U.S. conflicts. The work provides a comprehensive encyclopedia covering the role of all major ethnic and racial minorities in the United States during wartime. Additionally, it considers how the integration of servicemen in the U.S. military set the precedent for the eventual desegregation of America's civilian population.
