    Information on Black GIs during WW 2

    Julian Langer

      Dear all,

       

      I am currently trying to find a database/file that list African-Americans who served during WW II. I am particularly interested in where they are coming from (hometown) and in which units they served or where they were stationed.

       

      So far I have only found a list of so-called "Coloured Units" but this does not seem to contain individual-level information. I would be grateful for any help. Data on veterans which contain these information would also be extremely helpful.

       

      Sincerely,
