Paperback Description:

The Black Knights is a trilling and unusual story about four fighter pilots serving in the German Air Force (Lufwaffe) in WWII. This fascinating tale is based upon extensive research done by the author who was motivated by the scarcity of information about the role that African Americans played in WWII. As he delved into this subject he became intrigued by the possibility that other nations, such as Germany, Russia, and Great Britain may have failed to tell the stories of the activities of soldiers of African descent in the military as well.

The author is a retired police detective who served in the U.S. Army of Occupation in Germany.
