1919. Being an intensely human and brilliant account of the world war and why and for what purpose America and the allies are fighting and the important part taken by the Negro including the horrors and wonders of modern warfare, the new and strange devices, etc. From The Negro's Part in the War: This treatise will set forth the black man's part in the world's war with the logical sequence of facts and the brilliant power of statement for which the author is famous. The mere announcement that the author of Race Adjustment, Out of the House of Bondage, and The Disgrace of Democracy is to present a history of the Negro in the great world conflict, is sufficient to arouse expectancy among the wide circle of readers who eagerly await anything that flows from his pen. In this treatise, Professor Miller will trace briefly, but with consuming interest, the relations of the Negro to the great wars of the past. He will point out the never-failing fount of loyalty and patriotism which characterizes the black man's nature, and will show that the Negro has never been a hireling, but has always been characterized by that moral energy which actuates all true heroism. The conduct of the Negro in the present struggle will be set forth with a brilliant and pointed pen. The idea of three hundred thousand American Negroes crossing three thousand miles of sea to fight the autocracy of the German crown constitutes the most interesting chapter in the history of this modern crusade against an unholy cause. The valor and heroism of the Afro-American contingent were second to none according to the unanimous testimony of those who were in command of this high enterprise.
