Author Peter Nelson Recounts the True Story of the WWI Harlem Hellfighters

Author Peter Nelson discussed his new nonfiction book about the Harlem Hellfighters of World War I on the BlogTalkRadio show that Nancy Brown of and I co-host.

Only Nancy had an emergency and I did the show solo for the first time because I didn't want to cancel this particular show. Why? Read the P.S. at the end of my article to learn about my special connection to author Peter Nelson.

The book's title is: A More Unbending Battle: the True Story of the Harlem Hellfighters Struggle for Democracy in WWI and Equality at Home. And Peter and I had a a terrific discussion of the Harlem Hellfighters, a unit of the New York National Guard who became part of the French army during World War I. We also discussed race relations in the U.S. before, during, and after the military service of the Harlem Hellfighters.
