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.
