Haulman to talk ‘book’ at BPL

Published 4:02 pm Wednesday, August 24, 2011

The Brewton Public Library will host a book talk with the Tuskegee Airmen Historian, Daniel Haulman from 5 to 6 p.m. tonight in the library conference room.
The book, Tuskegee Airmen, An Illustrated History: 1939-1949, is a comprehensive account of a pioneering group of African American pilots with several special features.
Many documentaries, articles, museum exhibits, books and moves have recounted the subject of the Tuskegee Airmen, the only black American military pilots of World War II. This publication goes further than training and subsequent accomplishments during combat, to trace the Airmen through the various stages of training, deployment and combat.
Hundreds of images in the publication also chronicle the critical support roles of non-flyers: doctors, nurses, mechanics, navigators, weathermen, parachute riggers and other ground support personnel, all of whom contributed to the Airmen’s success.
Daniel Haulman is a historian with the Air Force Historical Research Agency at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, which is the primary repository for Air Force historical documents.
