Publisher Description:

It's up, up, and away with the Tuskegee Airmen, a heroic group of African American military pilots who helped the United States win World War II.

During World War II, black Americans were fighting for their country and for freedom in Europe, yet they had to endure a totally segregated military in the United States, where they weren't considered smart enough to become military pilots. After acquiring government funding for aviation training, civil rights activists were able to kickstart the first African American military flight program in the US at Tuskegee University in Alabama. While this book details thrilling flight missions and the grueling training sessions the Tuskegee Airmen underwent, it also shines a light on the lives of these brave men who helped pave the way for the integration of the US armed forces.

These biographies highlight the lives of famous people in a story-telling format. The easy-to-read stories are captivating and black and white illustrations are featured on every page. From birth to death, details of the people's lives are given in a fun and entertaining way. The books are about a hundred pages each. Though the stories are told in a fun way with many illustrations, they still give much historical information about each person and the world around them. They are great for introducing historical figures to younger students or giving a general overview of the person for older students. A timeline of the person's life events and other world events is included in each book. ~ Rachel
