In 1943, Rudy Tokiwa, Fred Shiosaki, and Kats Miho volunteered for the 442nd Infantry Regiment of the US Army, troops made up of second-generation Japanese Americans. While their families were unconstitutionally detained in American internment camps, the heroic men of the 442nd plunged into the bloody battlefields of Europe, enduring staggering casualties and helping to change the course of World War II. Daniel James Brown follows these valiant young recruits, bringing to vivid life their incredible bravery and loyalty and contextualizing the bigotry they and their families continued to face at home. Expertly and sensitively told, this is a a riveting examination of courageous men who "through their actions, laid bare for all the world to see exactly what it means to be an American." (AG)
