In the fall of 1941 some of the brightest men in America began to assemble in Tuskegee, Alabama. History would remember them as the Tuskegee Airmen. They would soon begin to set the record straight about the competency of members of their race to fly sophisticated aircraft, specifically, and the character, courage, intellect, and integrity of their race in general.
But there is much more to know about the Tuskegee Airmen than just the portion of their lives spent as fighter pilots. A Pilots Journey tells readers who these men, like Curtis Robinson, really are and captures the reasons that Robinson and his peers excelled so outstandingly during WWII and why they continued to succeed during their lifetimes. It was who they were plus all of their prior preparation for the life provided by their families, institutions, and communities.
