In his professional career Bernard Nalty was well known for his historical research and non-fiction publications on the military, particularly his writing on black Americans in the military. Along with Morris J. MacGregor, Jr. he edited the thirteen-volume Blacks in the United States Armed Forces and he wrote, and in 1986 published, Strength for the Fight: A History of Black Americans in the Military. Mr. Nalty believed the history of black Americans in the United States military was not adequately researched or shared with the general public, and his passion was to correct that oversight. Prior to retiring in 1994, Mr. Nalty was a senior historian in the Office of Air Force History and edited Winged Shield, Winged Sword: A History of the USAF.
