Hidden Heroes: The Nisei Soldiers of WWII

This is the unsung story of America’s Nisei warriors of WWII, the sons of Japanese immigrants who volunteered by the thousands after Pearl Harbor and served in a segregated regiment to fight in some of the bloodiest battles of the Second World War. Featuring sit-down interviews, archival imagery, illustration and narration, the documentary centers around two groups of Nisei soldiers: the 100th/442nd Regimental Combat Team (RCT), the most decorated unit for its size and length of service in the history of the U.S. military; and the Military Intelligence Service, a group of Nisei linguists and translators credited with shortening the war and saving millions of lives.
