Description
Although only a cook, Doris Miller fought bravely against Japanese attackers at Pearl Harbor. The young African-American from Texas was one of the first sailors to earn the Navy Cross during World War II, and the first African-American. He became a hero to the country and a proud icon for the African-American community and the war effort in general. Despite his notoriety and accolades, Miller returned to combat and was killed in action. This is the story of his heroic life from one of the top non-fiction writers in the West. From his boyhood in Waco, Texas, to his death in the Pacific, Bill O'Neal tells the tale of a World War II hero.
