Abstract:

For the first time ever, Uncommon Courage: Patriotism and Civil Liberties tells the story of the Military Intelligence Service (MIS) during World War II and the Occupation of Japan. Thousands of MIS soldiers, mostly Japanese American, fought for the United States in the Pacific in a unique role, using language as their weapon. They interrogated Japanese prisoners, translated documents, intercepted communications, and infiltrated enemy lines. Some of these MIS soldiers volunteered from those camps. Many found themselves fighting against their own brothers and relatives. Ironically, at the same time, many of their families back home were locked behind barbed wire in isolated imprisonment camps, stripped of their civil rights, their allegiance questioned. A dramatic and moving personal saga, these soldiers showed Uncommon Courage as they fought to overcome fear, discrimination, and racial prejudice in the land of their birth. Theirs is an American story.
