Max Brooks on his graphic novel “The Harlem Hellfighters”
April 2, 2014
Guest: Max Brooks
World War I was said to be â€śThe War to End All Wars,â€ť and our guest, author MAX BROOKS responds, â€śbut the truthâ€™s got an ugly way of killinâ€™ nice stories.â€ť The former history major has long-wanted to tell the story of the real-life African-American 369th Infantry Regiment that fought with the French in World War I, but he didnâ€™t want it to be presented in a boring way. So the author of three zombie books, including â€śWorld War Z,â€ť has created a graphic novel, â€śThe Harlem Hellfighters,â€ť illustrated by Canaan White.
