“A valuable portrait of a part of the evolution of the U.S. Army over the last half-century.”—Booklist (Booklist)
“Military writer Yenne interviewed 60 members of the last West Point class to graduate before the attack on Pearl Harbor and follows their lives through the far-flung conflict that ensued. The personal tales of these new officers are intertwined and gradually lead the reader through the entire war. . . . The result is an easily read and anecdotal work for the general public.”—Library Journal (Library Journal)
"Black '41 presents quite an interesting account of how one class of West Pointers served their country in both war and peace. Military Academy graduates and all those readers interested in American military history since 1941 should find this to be an especially enjoyable read."—Roger D. Cunningham, Journal of America’s Military Past (Roger D. Cunningham Journal of America's Military Past)
