When Yuki and his friend Shig ship out, they aren't prepared for the experiences they'll encounter as members of the "Four-Four-Two," a segregated regiment made up entirely of Japanese American soldiers. Before Yuki returns home—if he returns home—he'll come face to face with persistent prejudices, grueling combat he never imagined, and friendships deeper than he knew were possible.
From author Dean Hughes comes a thought-provoking and action-packed page-turner based on the little-known history of the Japanese Americans who fought with the 442nd Regimental Combat Team during World War II.
