It is 1944, a time during which Hitleras Nazis treated the world to
an enormously destructive war. This event finds Nick Parker, a
nineteen-year-old African American from Philadelphia, fighting the
war onboard a Sherman Tank in General Pattonas 761st Tank
Battalion, in the U.S. Third Army in battle-scarred Western Europe.
The fact that he is fighting for his country against racist Nazis
drives hypocritical truths home to Nick, whoas left frustrated
wondering about his role fighting in a segregated American Army,
where Jim Crow policy is the order of the day. Nick witnesses war
and destruction, Nazi atrocities committed in concentration camps
he has helped liberate, and the humiliating discrimination endured
by African American troops. Taking all this in, rather than
reinforcing Nickas doubts about the probability of any good being
in mankind, Nick channels these negative experiences into the
mature, honorable, tolerant acceptance of others.
