Excellent War Movie and shows you a part of American History that has been buried, if your a veteren you need to see this, shows our US Japanese citzens during WWII, a great showing.
Excellent World War II vehicle telling the true story of the 442nd Infantry Regiment which was comprised of all Japanese Americans and coincidentally was the most decorated unit in World War II. The movie stars Van Johnson but features many of the men who were actual members of the 442nd and non-actors. This film follows these men from just out of basic training in the states to their battles with the Germans in Europe and shows the racism they had to endure from their fellow soldiers but also the admiration and respect they earned for their bravery. Not a big fan of war movies but I really like this film and thought for a 1951 movie, it did a descent job of accurately portraying the heroics of these brave young men.
Van Johnson stars in this movie where he trains Japanese-Americans (Budda Heads in the movie) to fight for the USA in Europe in WWII.
