Us[es] a diverse range of sources. . . . Reclaims the legacy of black soldiers and establishes the World War I era as a defining moment in the history of African Americans and peoples of African descent more broadly. . . . An important addition to a WWI library.--Lone Star Book Review Torchbearers of Democracy is like nothing else in the field.--Canadian Journal of History William's account of the experiences of African American servicemen in World War I and the transformative impact on them is a model study and one well worth reading.--Journal of American Ethnic History A far-ranging and detailed analysis.--St. Mihiel Trip-Wire A nuanced, scintillating, and highly original work.--Journal of the North Carolina Association of Historians Torchbearers of Democracy provides more than a new account of a pivotal chapter in the history of African Americans in the military, it reintroduces us to those who fought for democracy.--Journal of African American History A clear, unvarnished look at America in World War I. . . . Concise, descriptive and easy to read. . . . A very necessary and valuable book.--TOCWOC A masterpiece of interpretative social history . . . . Essential.--Journal of Southern History This well-written, accessible book illustrates the impact of the war in the context of the wider freedom struggle. . . . A fine addition to the growing literature on the relationship between war and democracy." --Journal of American History Torchbearers of Democracy reclaims the legacy of black soldiers and establishes the World War I era as a defining moment in the history of African Americans and peoples of African descent more broadly. . . . This book is an important addition to a W.W.I library.--The Lone Star Book Review Williams places the experiences of African American soldiers during the World War I era front and center. In doing so, he illuminates the powerful, and often shifting, connections between citizenship and military service in a democracy.--U.S. Military History Review Torchbearers of Democracy is not a story with heroes and villains, only victims. And Williams tells the story with the exquisite skill of a scholarly storyteller.--Virginia Libraries [Williams] writes with grace, occasional flair, and a solidly readable style. The book sustains the reader's interest, even in the sections where the material is extremely familiar.--Canadian Journal of History Indispensable. . . . Bits and pieces of this story may be found in a variety of other histories, but none to date have put the entire story together with the comprehensiveness, care, research, and insight of this hefty work. Highly recommended.--Choice [The] balance between the stories of black culturalists and those of black objects of terror, along with an astonishing breadth of scholarship and a graceful style. . . makes Torchbearers of Democracy the best account yet of a complex and decisive moment in African American social, civic, and cultural history.--African American Review
