Abstract:

Beyond barbed wire recounts the personal sacrifices and stories of heroism displayed by the Japanese American soldiers of the 100th Infantry Battalion and the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and Military Intelligence Service who fought for the United States during World War II while their families were held in internment camps.

The feature film, Go for broke! is set during World War II which depicts Lt. Michael Grayson, a bigoted Texan, who is assigned to train and lead the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, which is composed mostly of Japanese-Americans.

Japanese relocation illustrates the process of relocating Japanese Americans to internment camps, life in the camps, and the reasoning behind the internments.

The documentary, Go for broke! illustrates the training of Japanese American soldiers in the U.S. Army during World War II.
