A true story that carries readers deep into the forests of France in World War II on a near-suicide rescue mission. Alongside Japanese-American GIs sent to rescue 275 soldiers who had been surrounded by Germans days earlier. The “lost battalion” had run out of food, water, medical supplies, and nearly all their ammunition. The Japanese Americans overcame mud, incessant rain bordering on snow, and hundreds of German riflemen, machine gunners, and artillery crews who had dug in on the six-mile ridge route to rescue the lost battalion.
The Japanese Americans comprised the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, a regiment commanded by white officers in a racist army in World War II. They had suffered unimaginable losses in earlier as many silently came to distrust and then despise the Caucasian general who led them.
