520    "Eleven years before Rosa Parks resisted going to the back
       of the bus, a young black second lieutenant, hungry to 
       fight Nazis in Europe, refused to move to the back of a 
       U.S. Army bus in Texas and found himself court-martialed. 
       The defiant soldier was Jack Roosevelt Robinson, already 
       in 1944 a celebrated athlete in track and football and in 
       a few years the man who would break Major League 
       Baseball's color barrier. This was the pivotal moment in 
       Jackie Robinson's pre-MLB career. Had he been found guilty,
       he would not have been the man who broke baseball's color 
       barrier. Had the incident never happened, he would've gone
       overseas with the Black Panther tank battalion-and who 
       knows what after that. Having survived this crucible of 
       unjust prosecution as an American soldier, Robinson-
       already a talented multisport athlete-became the ideal 
       player to integrate baseball. This is a dramatic story, 
       deeply engaging and enraging. It's a Jackie Robinson story
       and a baseball story, but it is also an army story as well
       as an American story"--|cProvided by publisher.
