Breaking barriers at home and abroad, the Tuskegee Airmen were a skilled group of African-American pilots chosen to fly during World War II. Nightfighters tells the story of these under appreciated soldiers. The 332nd Fighter Group was established to provide air support for white fighters.

Black pilots, support crew, and surgical staff inhabited Italy and North Africa during World War II, making it the first integrated operation.
