Summary Only fourteen of the approximately 1,000 Tuskegee Airmen-the famed black aviators who fought in World War II-are still living today. This is the remarkable first-person account of one of those fourteen men, Lt. Colonel Harry T. Stewart Jr., who flew forty-three combat missions in Italy-including one legendary mission in which he shot down three German planes in one day. Stewart and his fellow pilots faced segregation, prejudice, and disrespect-and still, day after day, they took to the skies to battle America's enemies.
