I ordered the DVD and was very impressed. This History Channel Documentary interviews Sprowl and several other black port battalion veterans and shows rarely seen film footage of supply operations on the Normandy beaches. Few people realize that almost two thousand African-Americans took part in the Normandy invasion. The war was rough on everyone, but these black troops had the added challenge of serving in a segregated army. With so little written about the black experience in WWII, this film is a must-see.
On NPR.org you can listen to a 9 minute 2007 radio interview with the director and port battalion veteran David Brown. They discuss the film and Brown describes his experience in the war.
