R a man to capture and winning countless decorations Though they returned as heroes this African American unit faced tremendous discrimination even from their own government The Harlem Hellfighters as the Germans called them fought courageously on and off the battlefield to make Europe and America safe for democracyIn THE The facts of the story one of the most decorated units of the war who were not given full respect by the US military leadership during the Jim Crow era are highly compelling The treatment by Brooks is good and the cameos by Eugene Bullard who s currently being treated in comic form in the pages of the Washington Post comics section and James Reese Europe The King of Jazz are nice touches White is an accomplished artist and the illustrations are strong It may be a personal issue but I find that his line is a little heavy with the result that the action in the black and white panels is sometimes hard to follow This is especially true in the battle scenes which from a distance appear to be a mass of fragmented shadows

The Harlem Hellfighters

HARLEM HELLFIGHTERS bestselling author Max Brooks and acclaimed illustrator Caanan White bring this history to life From the enlistment lines in Harlem to the training camp at Spartanburg South Carolina to the trenches in France they tell the heroic story of the 369th in an action packed and powerful tale of honor and hear Written by Max Brooks and illustrated by Caanan White in black and white photo journalist style and very dramatic in all respects Brooks is the World Zzombie writer so it was surprising to me that he was the one who wrote this and that it is this well written The art focused on a lot of action is sometimes a little confusing but overall good The focus was on the 369th Infantry in WWI who had grown up and came back to racism but who were heroic fighters in the war a little known story of African Americans fighting for their country and killing white people with the blessing of white people ironically As soldiers they experienced racism too though this was work they saw as advancing themselves and their race In some ways this came true and in some ways as they came back to see fanfare that mainly came to whites well but this is an important contribution to history and African American history in particular Pretty fascinating stuff to have in an accessible form It feels cinematic probably in part because Brooks tried and failed to drum up interest for a film on the subject WWI not much interest in that in the studios and then African Americans in WWI he was told there wouldn t be an audience I disagree and think a film might come out of it still if this book gets around It feels already a little like the film he had wished he made But it s good and worth reading Maybe a good book for WWI units in History courses but it is not just a YA text either

From bestselling author Max Brooks the riveting story of the highly decorated barrier breaking historic black regiment the Harlem HellfightersIn 1919 the 369th infantry regiment marched home triumphantly from World War I They had spent time in combat than any other American unit never losing a foot of ground to the enemy o As far as I can tell this is a lightly fictionalized account of the Harlem Hellfighters an all black regiment that served in World War I Though American they served for and with a French army that treated them with significantly humanity than that of their own country It s a compelling story that Brooks has made very readable The racism that the regiment encounters can be very difficult to read but it absolutely should be read It s a shame that despite their accomplishments the men of the 369th have been largely forgottenThe art does drag down the story a bit It can be hard to tell what s going on during action scenes and there are places where the violence is so incredibly over the top that it s just plain distracting

    I love it when graphic novels are used to tell personal or historical stories it's true that they are not just for superheroes Max Brooks said he has been fascinated by the African American infantry regiment known as the Harlem Hellfighters since he first learned about them in 5th grade The Hellfighters were honored for their service in World War IWe spent 191 days in combat Longer than any American unit whi

    As far as I can tell this is a lightly fictionalized account of the Harlem Hellfighters an all black regiment that served in World War I Though American they served for and with a French army that treated them with significantly humanity than that of their own country It's a compelling story that Brooks has made very readable The racism that the regiment encounters can be very difficult to read but it absolutely should be read It

    RESEÑA EN ESPAÑOLActual rate 35The Harlem Hellfighters is a uick and yet very educational reading This is the story of an African American regiment and the hardly given acknowledgment of their brave actions during the first world war because of racismMy favorite aspect is the mix of the fictional characters and the real ones such as Henry Johnson You can google his name and learn about him or you can read this comic wh

    I'm afraid the ratings may be inflated on this book because of the subject matter First of all I find WWI stories fascinating right off the bat So I was ready to like this one alot before I even started Second I think there is a reluctance to give a bad rating to anything tackling the subject of racism This book is not bad but I think it will make a better movie than it did a graphic novel The author has sai

    This is one of those books that blurs the boundary between kid's picture books and YA ish graphic novels It's being called a graphic novel by many folks on GR not sure if it is advertised that way but is shaped like a picture book and laid out like one The material is too adult for a young picture book crowd I would say the content is appropriate for middle grade or YA While the story is important and fascinating I don't think it's addre

    Hard to believe there is still resistance by many prominent Americans to bring the true history of the United States of America to the world Many choose to still wear blinders and sanitize events that took place and are still occurring to subjugate and repress a significant portion of its population and to deny those pe
