"Larry Greenly's biography intrigued, enlightened, and saddened me. To live and fight for a country during a time of intense war, only to be treated less than human, yet remain true to your dreams of tolerance and love is truly a feat for only the bravest among us. Eugene's perseverance and drive should encourage us all to seek the good in everyone. Mr. Greenly reminds us of the true American hero who was Eugene Bullard, the World's First Black Fighter Pilot." --Military Writers Society of America
"Bullard's story has been documented through meticulous primary research and scant secondhand sources in a eminently readable book by Larry Greenly for young adults, adults and anyone looking for an adventure story that just happens to detail a forgotten pioneer of American history." --Mountain Times
