Max Brooks on his graphic novel “The Harlem Hellfighters”
August 1, 2014
Guest: Max Brooks
[From the Radio Times archive] 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, The Harlem Hellfighters, illustrated by Canaan White. Marty sat down with Brooks to talk about his book this April.
