Editorial Reviews

Review

“In this compelling, easy-to-read account, James M. McCaffrey offers a comprehensive history of the 100th/442nd Infantry Regiment, one of the army’s most renowned combat units in World War II. In telling the story of the entire regiment, Going for Broke represents an important first in the historiography of World War II.”—Michael D. Doubler, author of Closing with the Enemy: How GIs Fought the War in Europe, 1944–1945

“Through skilled narration and combat analysis, McCaffrey integrates the 100th/442nd into the total war effort. His subjects emerge as ‘soldiers like the rest’—challenged and harassed by racism, but not victims.”—
Dennis Showalter, author of Instrument of War: The German Army 1914–18

"A comprehensive overview for anyone interested in the Japanese-American soldiers' struggle, not only against their German enemies but also to gain acceptance as equals among their fighting countrymen." —
