Reviews about HIT HARD (Bantam War Book) (6):

It's an entertaining read that makes you alternatively love and loathe various characters, which is precisely as a good book should. It starts a bit slow but ends in a rush leaving you wanting more.
Factual? Well...I wasn't there. I hope it's significantly wrong because it seems as if the military was flush with despicable and cowardly officers, according to this author. He also admits (brags?) from the start that he was ambitious and a huge suck-up, so his view of more career-successful men may be based less on reality than on personal envy...I really don't know.

The is a very interesting book and for the price it was a steal. Looking forward to finding another book of this caliber. Looking forward to buying more books from this site.

What makes this story interesting is that it takes place in the 761st Tank Battalion a segregated Black combat unit in WWII. It is from the viewpoint of a White officer in the unit who admits from the beginning that he would rather have been in a White unit, also it reads like it was written in the 1980's not the 1940's. Still, the story is well worth reading. The history of Black combat units during WWI was greatly discredited by US commanders, most certainly due to racism since the French Army gave the same units high marks for bravery. The US Army was pressured during WWII to give Black combat units another chance and the feeling at the time was that White officers were needed to lead them. Mr. Williams apparently believes that the White officers commanding the unit were either incompetent or uncaring and that the Black enlisted men were not sufficiently motivated to perform as well as White soldiers. He points out several incidents where a breakdown of discipline occurred (similar incidents occurred in White units that were later honored with Unit Citations). The Army during WWII apparently did not think that the Black units performed as well as White units and this is why they were not honored for their sacrifices with a Unit Citation until 1978. I was in the Army from 1967 to 1997, four of those years in the Armor (a Tank Battalion). I sadly must admit that the soldiers at the ground level still did not consider Black leaders to be as capable as White leaders although the Army Command structure did try very hard to advance Minorities. I hope there have been changes in attitude.

This book was written by the white officer commanding one of the Armor companies in the 76st Tank Battalion, an All-Black separate tank battalion in Europe in WWII. Williams is extraordinarily honest about his frustrations at being assigned to this unit, and his eventual pride and respect for his Soldiers.

Williams details the training, deployment, and combat of the unit across Europe. He describes the highs and lows. Few thought the unit would be combat effective, they received low priority for equipment and supplies, they were kept in the line far longer than most white units, and like most separate Battalions, were regularly deployed piecemeal. Nonetheless, the unit was admired and respected by units of the 26th Yankee Division as they fought across Europe.

This book also served as a source for Kareem Abdul Jabbar's "Brothers in Arms - the story of the 761st Tank Battalion." Jabbar's father was an NCO in the unit.

For military officers or others who want to understand how far we have come - and how far we have to go - in treating all soldiers equally, this is an important book.

Weak World War 2 tale. Not good enough.
