Luft Gangster: Memoirs of A Second Class Hero
A Riveting Story of a Tuskegee Airmen POW
Translated to English Meaning "Air Gangster" was the name given to
American pilots by the Nazi regime during WW II
A living testimony on social injustice, societal evolution and a vivid personal account of the fascinating life of Lt. Col. Alexander Jefferson (USAF Ret). At 92 years old, Alex Jefferson recalls his trials and tribulations from early childhood racism in America, to his segregated military training and oversees combat deployment in WWII. He tells of his stay as a P.O.W. in Nazi Germany and recalls his sobering walk through Dachau, a recently liberated concentration camp. After heroically serving his country in the world’s worst war, Alex joyfully returned home only to be greeted by bigotry and segregation.
