By the end of World War II these two units composed of the sons of Japanese Immigrants, who were not trusted to fight in the Pacific, were Americas most decorated combat units. They fought at Anzio, Salerno, Cassino and in the Vosges Mountains where they “fought fiercely to rescue the ‘lost battalion’ of Texans hopelessly cut off by the enemy”. For many of these men the fighting was an opportunity, consciously or unconsciously, to overcome prejudice in the US and to restore some dignity to their families who were still languishing in “relocation” camps, having had their homes and livelihoods taken from them at the beginning of the war.

First published in Japan in 1983 and translated into English in 1987, the book is well documented, considered the definitive account of the actions of the 100th and 442nd. This particular book is in like new condition.

I've priced US shipping for Media Mail. I'm sorry that there is no equally thrifty rate for out of US shipping. I will, however happily ship internationally and will provide a shipping rate to your location if you convo me.
