An Investigation into the Success of the Tuskegee Airmen (Paperback)


The men and women who participated in the "Tuskegee Experiment" were truly pioneers in the creation of our modern integrated armed forces. There are many sources including textbooks, biographies, and museum brochures that provide insight into the long list of notable accomplishments by the Tuskegee Airmen. One of the most notable is their well-documented accomplishment of having never lost a bomber under their protective escort. This feat placed the 99th Fighter Squadron and the rest of the 332nd Fighter Group among the allied elite during the campaign through the perilous skies of WW II Europe. The following pages delve into the reasons for their remarkable record by examining various sources including unit histories, correspondence, mission reports, and biographies. The key points that arise from the sources are the impact of several key members of the unit leadership, the importance of quality training, strict discipline and adherence to escort tactics, and the quality and character of the individual airmen.
