Publisher Description

From bestselling author Max Brooks, the riveting story of the highly decorated, barrier-breaking, historic black regiment—the Harlem Hellfighters

In 1919, the 369th infantry regiment marched home triumphantly from World War I. They had spent more time in combat than any other American unit, never losing a foot of ground to the enemy, or 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 democracy.  

In THE 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 heart.

Great story, compellingly drawn

A fascinating history lesson about a tragically little-known piece of U.S. history in World War I.
My only wish, for selfish reasons, is that it was longer.

Amazing Graphic Novel!

I had to read this in one sitting, as I couldn't put it down. I can't believe I've never heard about these courageous men before, I truly hope this beautifully written, amazingly drawn book will change all of that.
6 Stars if I could...
