By Lieutenant Colonel Charles W. Dryden, USAF (Retired)
With a forward by Lieutenant General Benjamin O. Davis Jr., USAF (Retired)
"A-Train: Memoirs of a Tuskegee Airman" is the moving memoir of a black military officer and illustrates the period of racial integration in both military and civilian life. Colonel Dryden's book commands our attention because it is a balanced account by an insightful man who enlisted in a segregated Army and retired from an integrated Air Force. Dryden is eloquent in his presentation of the experiences he has shared and the changes he has witnessed. This story of an authentic American hero will touch each and every reader.
