I just found this interesting documentary about japanese/american soldiers in ww2, fighting in europe.


for anyone interested (and with a fast connection! ) it is posted to the following newsgroup - alt.binaries.multimedia.japanese
look for "honor bound - go for broke".

its about 560mb, mpg format.


The 442nd has been recognized as the most decorated unit in United States history. 18,000 total awards were bestowed upon the 442nd, including 9,500 Purple Hearts, 52 Distinguished Service Crosses, Seven Distinguished Unit Citations, but only one Congressional Medal of Honor .

One of the wars best kept secrets?
I had never heard of this unit until now.
fascinating stuff.
