Democracy's Negroes: A Book of Facts Concerning the Activities of Negroes in World War II
Boston: The House of Edinboro, Publishers. (1947). First. First edition. 315pp., illustrated. Fine in very good or better dustwrapper with modest chipping near the crown. Inscribed by the author to the highest ranking African-American officer to serve in the Second World War: "To Brigadier Gen. B.O. Davis, A great leader. Arthur F. Furr, Author. Flag Day. June 14, 1954." Furr served in WWI, and afterwards co-wrote The American Negro Soldier with the Red Hand of France, a good regimental history of the 372nd Colored Infantry Regiment. About as good an association as can be imagined -- Davis is mentioned extensively, and pictured, in the chapter about the Air Corp. .
