ISBN: 9781101987391
New York, NY: Berkley, 2017. First Edition. Hardcover. “Their story was almost forgotten by history. Now known as the Wereth 11, these brave African-American soldiers left their homes to join the allied effort on the front lines of WWII.” Every man who agrees to put his life on the line for the safety of the people “back home” can take up the title “hero” – but is there any title with enough valor to commemorate men who, despite being one of the lowest classes of American Citizens before, during, and after the war, fought so bravely overseas and died so violently? Perhaps there’s no singular word that will ever fully encapsulate the strength behind that type of sacrifice, or any sacrifice, but Robert Child (b.1963) and Denise George (b.1951) do more than just grant the men of Wereth 11 with titular honorifics, they tell the (almost) forgotten story of their specifically African-American battalion. Child is an Emmy-nominated writer and director, having made films in North America and Europe and is one of the only directors whose work has screened in the Congress of the United States. His accompanying author, Denise George, is a fellow world-traveler and writer having written and co-written over thirty books, mostly of the Christian Faith variety. From the collection of Barbara (1935-2023) & Irving (1933-2018) Nusbaum - world travelers, connoisseurs, eminent collectors of art & books, and the dearly beloved late parents of our esteemed founder, Arthur S.
