    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

    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

O capture and winning countless decorations Though they returned as heroes this African American unit The Harlem PDF 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 Harlem Hellfighters

From bestselling author Max Brooks the riveting story of the highly decorated barrier breaking historic black regiment the Harlem HellfightersIn the th 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 or a man t. 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

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 people their part in American history and world events Read the author s note I m not a big fan of graphic novels but I am grateful to the author to use whatever vehicle was available to tell this story Shame on members of the print and visual media who passed on this great opportunity My African American grandfather served in France in WWI but he never talked about his service When asked about his service his countenance would cloud and a frown would come over his face and he would say he didn t want to talk about it Max Brooks has done me a personal favor and a favor to all Americans who wa
