Review:

Go For Broke is a pictorial history of the Japanese-American 100th Infantry Battalion and the 442d Regimental Combat Team active in the World War II European theatre. The Japanese-American Nisei warriors fighting on the side of American and the Allies earned 9,486 purple hearts and numbered 680 of their comrades in arms as killed in action. Their individual decorations for bravery include a Congressional Medal of Honor, 52 Distinguished Service Crosses, 588 Silver Stars, and 5,200 Bronze Stars. Their unit recognitions include 87 Division Commendations, 36 Army Commendations, and a truly remarkable seven Presidential Unit Citations. These fighting men were allowed to volunteer while being male Japanese-American internees as the result of a war-time hysteria which had resulted in the internment of over 100,000 Japanese Americans (70,000 of whom were native-born American citizens) into ten concentration camps scattered around the United States. Go For Broke is a unique military history and a Japanese-American triumph. -- Midwest Book Review
