Max Brooks will write the screenplay adaptation himself, with Caleeb Pinkett and James Lassiter producing for Overbrook Entertainment. The graphic novel, which will be published in April, follows the 369th Infantry Regiment, an all African-American troop based out of Harlem who fought in France during World War I, and were one of the most decorated unites in the war. Take a look at the graphic novel's official description.
"In 1919, the 369th infantry regiment marched triumphantly home from World War 1. 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."
