Jim Taylor's Memoirs of the 28th Battalion: An American Korean Campaign
By: Timothy E Taylor
About the Book
As a Black man in twentieth-century America, Jim Taylor faced racial divides his entire life, but he loved his life nevertheless. Serving in the US Army during the Korean Campaign, Jim was assigned to a segregated regiment of Black men with White officers in command. Just like any other soldier, Jim witnessed the deaths of young men who will not be forgotten. In that campaign, he also witnessed the propaganda which hurt the people trying to love their home, the USA. A proud American, Jim shared many stories of perseverance and patriotism with his family, and those experiences are recounted here.
