|Synopsis of: LT Williams on the Color Front (A novel)
“Lieutenant, I’m neither a member of the NAACP nor of the White Citizens Council,” said Colonel Ritter. “But I would have preferred the Department of the army to send me a White lieutenant instead of a Colored one like you.”

In 1950, to have a Colored officer in charge of White soldiers could lead to heartburn and conflict; and with regards to LT Williams, this is exactly what happens.
