about

The desegregation of the American armed forces—one of the most sweeping changes in the military's history—is widely remembered as a straightforward, relatively effortless process and a shining example of the effectiveness of America's military command. Foxholes and Color Lines challenges this view, revealing both the intense political conflict at the time and the strenuous opposition to racial integration within all branches of the armed forces.

Sherie Mershon is a research fellow at the Center for History and Policy, Carnegie Mellon University. Steven Schlossman is a professor of history and director of the Center for History and Policy at Carnegie Mellon University.
