really liked it
Read in June, 2012

Well written and well documented look into both the Battle for Saipan and the explosions that rocked Port Chicago leading to the death of many ammunition loaders of African descent. Both battles were important, one was a needed step towards victory over Japan and the other was a needed step towards full equality in the armed services. Worth reading especially if you like a lateral view of history and like to appreciate the interconnectedness of events.
I received this book for free as a review copy but received no compensation for writing this review.
