gfbGo for Broke is a great story of American heroism from WWII.

Japanese-Americans were forcefully removed from their homes & businesses, & placed in “relocation” camps throughout the West. ¬†With countless instances og “Gestapo-like”tactics used against them, no one would’ve faulted them for being bitter or angry at the country that held them captive.

Instead, the remarkable story of these Nesei (first-generation-born Japanese born outside of Japan) warriors explains why they were eager to defend their American homeland, & how they became the most decorated fighting unit ever assembled in U.S. military history.

Go for Broke¬†is the incredible story of how these soldiers, known as the “Purple Heart Battalion”, helped liberate Europe, the Pacific, & America from its pervasive & systemic bigotry.
