ABSTRACT

Nisei Spirit: The Cultural Identity of the 442nd RCT   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Document: "David Bonner's Nisei Spirit monograph is a professionally written piece addressing one of the most intriguing units in US military history, the 442nd Infantry 'Nisei' Regiment of World War II. [...] Although born and raised in the United States, the Nisei soldiers of the 442nd RCT [regimental combat team] were very much a product of both American and Japanese cultural systems that imbued them with a sense of duty to repeatedly volunteer for dangerous missions without hesitation. Instead of focusing primarily on their battlefield accomplishments, this work will examine the significance that Japanese cultural heritage and social values played in the creation of the 442nd RCT."
