"An important and timely book, especially given the recent historic changes in the American political scene."

"Robert F. Jefferson provides a complex and nuanced—yet highly readable—account of the African American soldiers who served in the all-black and segregated U.S. Army's 93rd Infantry Division... A marvelous book."

"Jefferson's Fighting for Hope is a rigorously researched, richly etched re-creation of the formation of the all-black Ninety-third Infantry Division, which fought in the Pacific theater."

"Well-written work."

"Fighting for Hope provides an immensely useful model for not only historians, but also political scientists studying how race, war, and culture shaped the lives of African Americans in the early twentieth century. For students of black military history, this book is a must read."

"An invaluable contribution to military history, African American history, and American social history."
