The Harlem Hellfighters (UK Edition)

Max Brooks
Caanan White
We became one of the most decorated units black or white in the entire American expeditionary force. Despite being forbidden to fight with our army, despite imported prejudice from our own government, despite the insults, restrictions and every possible attempts “to repress them sternly” , despite being set up to fail, we not only stopped Germany’s best from taking Paris but also helped drive them all the way back to their fatherland.’ The Harlem Hellfighters
 
Based on true events, The Harlem Hellfighters is the action-packed and powerful story of a group of exceptional African-American soldiers. In 1919, the 369th infantry regiment – ‘The Harlem Hellfighters’ as the Germans called them - 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 and winning countless decorations. Despite their bravery and extraordinary achievements, The Harlem Hellfighters faced tremendous discrimination, racism, and outright violence from their own government. The Harlem Hellfighters tells the story of the unsung African-American heroes of The Great War.
 
A powerful comic that may do more than any previous work to illuminate the heroism of the 369th. And now that Sony and Will Smith have optioned the film rights, perhaps an entire nation will come to salute its sacrifice.’The Washington Post
‘The Harlem Hellfighters brings to life a long forgotten piece of American history. Bravo, Max Brooks, bravo.’ Spike Lee, American Film Director
