The Marines of Montford Point: America's First Black
With an executive order from President Franklin Roosevelt in 1941, the United States Marine Corps--the last all-white branch of the U.S. military--was forced to begin recruiting and enlisting African Americans. The first black recruits received basic training at the segregated Camp Montford Point, adjacent to Camp Lejeune, near Jacksonville, North Carolina.

This book, in conjunction with the documentary film of the same name, tells the story of these Marines for the first time.Drawing from interviews with 60 veterans, The Marines of Montford Point relates the experiences of these pioneers in their own words. From their stories, we learn about their reasons for enlisting; their arrival at Montford Point and the training they received there; their lives in a segregated military and in the Jim Crow South; their experiences of combat and service in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam; and their legacy. The Marines speak with flashes of anger and humor, sometimes with sorrow, sometimes with great wisdom, and alw...

Victory Point Games Empires in America Second Edition - The French and Indian War Boxed Board
Created by veteran designer Joe Miranda, Empires in America is a solitaire States of Siege game of the conflict in North America between the French and British in the mid-18th century. This war, known locally as The French and Indian War, became embroiled in Europe's Seven Years' War (1756-63), which caused that conflict to expand into a true World War (this was World War 0, for those keeping count). The French and Indian War saw small armies (with Indian allies joining them, particularly on the French side) march through vast wildernesses to fight battles which decided America’s fate. This war was a prelude to the American Revolution that broke out two decades later. Contains: * 1 17" x 22" paper game map * 12 3/4" square game pieces * 40 5/8" square game pieces * 75 Historique cards * 1 Red 6-sided die * 1 Blue 6-sided die * 2 White 6-sided die * 1 Rulebook
