Pretty interesting.

A very good movie made about the 442nd was called "Go for Broke".

I have that movie actually (in a series of 20 century wartime movies). I found it was one of the better ones.
1PUK you should see the one movie that Wittmann recommended if you haven't seen it yet.

Only the Brave was another movie about the 442nd. It was okay. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJKHhDGNMgE.

I'll have to watch "Only the Brave".

The soldiers of the US Army 442nd Infantry Regiment served under difficult circumstances and excelled in the field of combat.
