Item description for A Man Named Doris by Juliete Parker...
Overview He joined the navy to see the world, and instead saw PEARL HARBOR! Doris Miller's magnificent heroism in that battle became the surest arguing point for abolishing the United States Navy's official system of racial segregation-which it eventually helped to do. Miller joined the Navy around the onset of World War II in search of a job. He suddenly found himself in the middle of the war when the Japanese attacked the U.S. Pacific fleet without warning on December 7, 1941. Untrained in the use of military weapons, Miller captured the hearts of millions of Americans as he successfully rose to the occasion and became a decorated national hero. This book includes the most astonishing part of Miller's story, which can't be found in history books. Miller was an ordinary person who won glory for himself and for his race-the human race.
