Written by Max Brooks and illustrated by Caanan White in black and white photo journalist style and very dramatic in all respects Brooks is the World Zzombie writer so it was surprising to me that he was the one who wrote this and that it is this well written The art focused on a lot of action is sometimes a little confusing but overall good The focus was on the 369th Infantry in WWI who had grown up and came back to racism but who were heroic fighters in the war a little known story of African Americans fighting for their country and killing white people with the blessing of white people ironically As soldiers they experienced racism too though this was work they saw as advancing themselves and their race In some ways this came true and in some ways as they came back to see fanfare that mainly came to whites well but this is an important contribution to history and African American history in particular Pretty fascinating stuff to have in an accessible form It feels cinematic probably in part because Brooks tried and failed to drum up interest for a film on the subject WWI not much interest in that in the studios and then African Americans in WWI he was told there wouldn t be an audience I disagree and think a film might come out of it still if this book gets around It feels already a little like the film he had wished he made But it s good and worth reading Maybe a good book for WWI units in History courses but it is not just a YA text either The Body Bears the Burden: Trauma, Dissociation, and Disease 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 Playing for Keeps: Michael Jordan and the World He Made (English Edition) heroic story of the 369th in an action packed and powerful tale of The Forbidden Groom: Texas Titan Romances (English Edition) honor and The Lives of the Artists (Oxford World's Classics) hear.
