Forlagets beskrivelse
The first African-American aircraft carrier commander, Rear Admiral Lawrence Cleveland Chambers (1920? ) played a prominent role as captain of the USS Midway during the Vietnam War. During the evacuation of Saigon?known as Operation Frequent Wind?he famously ordered several UH-1 helicopters pushed overboard to make room for an escaping South Vietnamese Air Force major to land his Cessna. Chambers, who had only commanded Midway for a few weeks, gave the order believing (wrongly, it turned out) that he would be court-martialed for the $10 million loss. This biography covers his early life and military career, including his role in the desegregation of the U.S. Navy during a period racial strife.
