This encyclopedia details the participation of individual ethnic and racial minority groups throughout U.S. military history.

Ethnic and Racial Minorities in the U.S. Military: An Encyclopedia is unique in its coverage of nearly all major ethnic and racial minority groups, as opposed to reference works that have focused only on individual ethnic or racial minority groups. It acknowledges the military contributions of African Americans, Asian Americans, French Americans, German Americans, Hispanic Americans, Irish Americans, Jewish Americans, and Native Americans.

This timely work highlights the individuals and events that have shaped the experience of minorities in U.S. conflicts. The work provides a comprehensive encyclopedia covering the role of all major ethnic and racial minorities in the United States during wartime. Additionally, it considers how the integration of servicemen in the U.S. military set the precedent for the eventual desegregation of America's civilian population.

  • More than 300 entries on ethnic and racial minorities in the U.S. military
  • Perspectives from more than 50 different contributors
  • Cross-references and books for further reading appended to each entry
  • Numerous photographs and illustrations bring the experience of ethnic and racial minorities in wartime to life
