Notes: A guide to help officers combat racial discrimination in the army in the waning years of the Viet Nam war. The authors report that the army had few Black officers, that Black soldiers had a hard time obtaining technical positions, and that Black soldiers were twice as likely as white soldiers to face discipline. The handbook devotes most of its efforts to trying to convince white officers that they and other white soldiers might be the problem. The final chapter (Appendix A) traces the history of segregation and integration in the Army.
