A Helpful Look at a Too Little Known Aspect of WWII History
Reviewed in the United States on September 5, 2016
A helpful resource for anyone researching Nisei (second-generation Japanese-American) contributions to our war effort in both Europe and the Pacific during World War II, with information hard to find elsewhere. The text does contain typographical errors, but few that obscure the meaning of the sentences in which they occur, and the author likes to front nouns referring to his Japanese-American soldiers or military-intelligence personnel with adjectives like "brave" and "intrepid" that context renders wholly unnecessary. The book's long final section features verbatim reproductions of the award citations won by Japanese-American soldiers or intelligence agents, for the Distinguished Service Cross, many of which were belatedly elevated to the Medal of Honor during the Clinton administration.
