About the Author

Isaac Hampton II is the U.S. Army South Command Historian at Fort Sam Houston, Texas and Adjunct Professor of History at San Antonio Community College.


"Drawing on numerous primary and secondary sources, The Black Officer Corps chronicles the tremendous struggle waged by African Americans to prove their worth as leaders in peace and war. Hampton has written a detailed and highly readable narrative tracing the black office's experience from the American Revolution, through the 1980's. It is an informative and valuable resource for the general reader of black military history." James E. Westheider, author of Fighting in Vietnam: The Experiences of the U.S. Soldier "Deeply researched and judiciously argued, Hampton's book does justice to a long-neglected subject by exploring it in the complex historical context of the Vietnam War era--its tensions and turmoil, opportunities and transformations." Christian G. Appy, author of Patriots: The Vietnam War Remembered From all Sides "Hampton has produced a valuable addition to the literature...[his collected] accounts add to a growing collection of voices and stories that will become a priceless resource for future scholars." Andrew H. Myers, University of South Carolina Upstate in The American Historical Review "Hampton's The Black Officer Corps is a welcome addition to the growing corpus on African Americans' military experiences. The oral histories that he conducted inform the narrative and underscore his argument that black officers struggled actively but nonradically for equality within the army system, balancing their duty as officers with the larger civil rights struggle." Amy Marie Perry Hedrick, University of North Texas
