Summary
"In World War I, 104 African American doctors joined the United States Army to care for the 40,000 men of the 92nd and 93rd Divisions, the Army's only black combat units. Fighting alongside French and other American units, some of those doctors rose to prominence; others died young or later succumbed to the economic and social challenges of the times. Beginning with their assignment to the Medical Officers Training Camp (Colored)-- the only one in U.S. history-- Fisher and Buckley cover the early years, education and war experiences of these physicians, as well as their careers in the black communities of early 20th century America."--Back cover.
