It is said history is written by the victor. But it can be also said the victor doesn't always tell the whole story. Because of racism the roles of African Americans during World War 2 was downplayed and often not recognized. This is the story of The 761st Tank Battalion. Known as The Black Panthers. This division distinguished themselves and was often the spearhead of General Patton's 3rd Army. Their motto was Come Out Fighting. This video is dedicated to their valor and bravery. May they rest in peace. Thank you for watching. I own no rights.
Other notable all black World War2 units were The Tuskegee Airmen, The 333rd Field Artillery Battallion, The Marines of Mumford Point (Iwo Jima) and The USS Mason all black Navy Destroyer crew.
