From the author of Soldier Boys and Search and Destroy comes an "immersive and inspirational" (Booklist, starred review) page-turner based on the little-known history of the Japanese Americans who fought with the 442nd Regimental Combat Team during World War II.

Yuki Nakahara is an American.

But its the start of World War II, and America doesnt see it that way. Like many other Japanese Americans, Yuki and his family have been forced into an internment camp in the Utah desert. But Yuki isnt willing to sit back and accept this injustice--its his country too, and hes going to prove it by enlisting in the army to fight for the Allies.

When Yuki and his friend Shig ship out, they arent prepared for the experiences theyll 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--hell come face to face with persistent prejudices, grueling combat he never imagined, and friendships deeper than he knew possible.
