    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 white or black In all that

    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 shoul

    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 t

    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 accomplish

    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

    Historical fiction packaged as a graphic novel An important story the trials and successes of black American soldiers in WWI introducing plenty of key figures in a sufficiently entertaining effective and poignant packageNon spoiler alert This is not for the faint of heart it's brutal and excuse the pun graphic stuffIn addition to the history it's worth it for the exuisite passage by Irvin Cobb penned in the Saturday Evening Post in 1918 I

The Harlem Hellfighters

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. 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 said the story started as a script he s been floating around Hollywood and adapted it to a graphic novel Overall I liked the book just found it a little 2 dimensional Yeah the black guys are heroic yeah they are persecuted anyway etc I get it There wasn t much depth I think there could be alot about the war conditions the men dealt with in general and the black characters who were motivated to go to war to be paid by white folks to kill other white folks More of that kind of grey area motivation would make it interesting The artwork is great however I think it suffers from the smaller format A larger format book with narrower margins would really let the artwork shine Definitely worth reading but not a 45 star book

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. 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 want to know the truth Being a graphic novel it leaves little to the imagination about the injustices suffered by these brave black Americans and the horrors of war I was thankful it is printed in black and white I encourage every American to read this It is appropriate for high schoolers and adults The bibliography is a valuable source for further reading on these forgotten hidden heroes

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
