1. The arrival of the first black American military

During the Second World War, black soldiers were generally deployed as engineer or drivers. White America thought blacks couldn't fight. The local people of Wijchen looked on in amazement when the first Afro-Americans drove into their villages. Wouldn't the colour of these black men run?

During the Second World War, black soldiers were not deployed at the front like the white Americans, but were generally used as engineers or drivers. White Americans believed that Blacks couldn't fight. This division between white and black soldiers was not ended until the Korean War in the 1950s. For many black Americans these days, the armed forces are still one of the few opportunities to climb the social ladder.
