The Tuskegee Airmen Jacqueline L. Harris In the book, The Tuskegee Airmen, there were several times when I was touched by the actions of the characters. The book was about a group of black men, "minorities," who were discriminated by the white commanding officers in the Unites States Air Force. Throughout the book, the few black pilots who were outnumbered by the many white pilots still held their heads up strong and continued with their dreams of fighting for their country, and that was another thing that I liked. 3 people found this helpful.

A good informational book. I purchased it for my middle schooler, but it is a little more difficult than I expected.

In the book, The Tuskegee Airmen, there were several times when I was touched by the actions of the characters. The book was about a group of black men, "minorities," who were discriminated by the white commanding officers in the Unites States Air Force. Throughout the book, it talks about the struggles of the black men who just wanted to fly and serve for their country. Nobody wants these black men to be pilots, but towards the end of the book, on one of their last missions they were recommended as great flyers by white men who once discriminated against them.
What I liked about the book was that the men never gave up when everybody that they met would put them down, even their black commanding pilot. They showed courage even when their own friends that they had met were killed in combat or even killed themselves. They also showed honor, being that they felt and knew that they were Americans trying to serve for their country, when everyone else was just looking at them like some kind of ignorant black people.
What I disliked about the book was all of the racism going on at the time. The black pilots were just like any other pilots, but treated different because of their skin color. Throughout the book, the few black pilots who were outnumbered by the many white pilots still held their heads up strong and continued with their dreams of fighting for their country, and that was another thing that I liked.
