Nisei is a Japanese term used in North and South American meaning "second generation," specifically referring to ethnically Japanese children born in the Americas to Japanese-born parents who immigrated there. This pamphlet details the heroic acts of the two Japanese-American combat units in World War II, the 442nd Combat Team and the 100th Battalion. A scarce pamphlet issued by the War Relocation Authority, the American governmental agency overseeing the mass internment of Japanese-Americans, often mentioning relocation camps, making note of soldiers who volunteered directly from them to join the US Army.
