Краткое описание

The Color of War: How One Battle Broke Japan and Another Changed America.

The author of The Ghost Mountain Boys here looks at July 1944, a pivotal month in the Pacific Theater of World War II, and pairs two great if often overlooked battles. The taking of Saipan was deemed to be "as important to victory over Japan as the Normandy invasion was to victory over Germany" (Donald Miller), though it was a grim and costly victory. As admirals Nimitz and King were celebrating, however, a disaster at home ripped through California's Port Chicago Naval Ammunition Depot with the force of a small atomic bomb. Hundreds of men—predominantly black sailors—were killed, while some of the survivors were tried for mutiny, in a case that ultimately forced a reluctant Navy to reconsider its racial policies."James Campbell masterfully juxtaposes two searing WWII experiences—one white, one black, one justly praised, one unjustly ignored—in a riveting story that makes your emotions, your indignation, and your adrenaline flow."—Dean King
