Listing Detail Tabs

Few units in the history of warfare have earned so many plaudits and
decorations in so short a time as did the US Army 442nd Regimental Combat Team
in the Second World War. Keen to show their loyalty to the USA, many Nisei
(Americans born to Japanese parents), signed up to fight, even if it meant
fighting the forces of Imperial Japan. Perhaps sensibly, the War Department sent
the young Japanese-Americans to Europe and war against the fascists of Germany
and Italy.

The 442nd Regimental Combat Team, a unit composed of three battalions of
infantry and supporting arms including artillery, anti-tank and engineers fought
in France, Italy and in Germany itself. Their regimental motto, Go for Broke!,
summed up their ferocious spirit, and their history does indeed suggest an
all-or-nothing approach to fighting that set them apart from other more
cautious units.

The Nisei became a legend in just a year, earning eight Presidential
citations and 21 Congressional Medals of Honour - far more than any other
unit of its size. It paid for it,s dogged mentality, suffering 93% casualties,
and was issued with 9,486 purple hearts, a fitting tribute to a truly original
and courageous fighting force.
