The 761st Tank Battalion was the first black unit to fight on foreign soil in WWII. From November 1944 to May 1945, the 761st fought its way across five countries, liberating a concentration camp, winning decorations, and taking casualties. Richard Allen narrates stories of valor, humor, and injustice faced with dignity in rolling tones that make this story as awesome and powerful as the tanks its heroes drove across Europe. Allen occasionally mispronounces place names and military terms, but this bounces off even the pickiest listener like small-arms fire off four-inch-thick armored plate.
