Facing the Mountain: A True Story of Japanese-American Heroes in WWII by Daniel James Brown



I'll add this ne to the list. I've read a couple of books on this topic. My best friend in middle/high schools family was rounded up and had to sleep in horse stalls at Santa Anita Racetrack before getting shipped off to Manzanar, a camp on the east side of California. It's a museum now, we visited there and I found their names in the list of internees. US native born and naturalized citizens that had die to prove their allegiance to the USA, a damm sad bit of history.

This one was good, standard a grit waring.

Unlikely Liberators: The Men of the 100th and 442nd

By: Masayo Umezawa Duus, translated by Peter Duus

A good read that includes the backstory of many of the Japanese American soldiers that fought in Europe. These soldiers had to fight prejudice overcome questions about their loyalty to finally be allowed to fight and die for their country.

Quote:
Unlikely Liberators is the action-filled story of the men of the 100th Battalion and the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. Not trusted to fight in the Pacific, these sons of Japanese immigrants were sent instead to the European theater. In the eyes of their own government and the Europeans they liberated, they were an unlikely group of fighting men. They nevertheless engaged the enemy with astonishing heroism, winning battle after battle at Anzio, Salerno, Cassino, and in the Vosges Mountains. At the end of the war, the 100th and the 442nd emerged as America’s most decorated units. They provided ample evidence of their patriotism to a country that had questioned their loyalty.

Masayo Duus begins her story with the formation of the Japanese American units, which were an outgrowth of America’s ambivalent attitude toward the entire Japanese American community at the outbreak of the war. She recounts their experiences in training and during the early battles in Italy, including the conflicts between Japanese American and Caucasian troops. The final part of the story focuses on the battle in the Vosges forest, where the 442nd fought fiercely to rescue the “lost battalion” of Texans hopelessly cut off by the enemy.

Based on extensive research in War Department archives and nearly three hundred interviews with veterans of the 100th and 442nd, Unlikely Liberators first appeared in serialized form in Japan, where it won the Bungeishunjusha Reader’s Prize. It is an absorbing and personalized account of young men suddenly separated from their families and friends, often confused and sometimes suspicious about what the army wanted from them. It portrays them as individuals confronting the multiple crises of war and social rejection and it shows that their greatest achievement was not their victory over a foreign enemy, but over prejudice at home. This book is a tribute to those men, who by their heroism reestablished for all Japanese Americans their personal dignity as full citizens in the country of their birth.

Interestingly enough, I've been to the Manzanar camp site twice. Both times in the mid-late '70s while on a college tour.

I forget when but one night I asked my FIL about the war and all he said was, "You see things you never want to see again." I knew by the look on his face as well as the tone of his voice that that would be the one and only time we would speak of it.

I've often wondered what I would have done if I were a young buck in 1943 when the loyalty questionnaire was issued. Would I have been a "Yes-Yes" guy or a "No-No" boy?

Gene, I don't know if this would matter to you or be too big of a hassle to do but since "Facing the Mountain" is also available as an audiobook, might I suggest having both the hard as well as electronic copy on hand as you're going through it? Although I felt the reader of the audiobook kinda, sorta butchered some of the Hawaiian words, thought he was pretty much spot on with the Japanese names and words. The mix of the two mediums might help you pronounce the names of the soldiers and characters more accurately. I was especially pleased when he pronounced "samurai" correctly.

For myself, whenever possible, I try to double up so that I can finish the book(s) faster. Our local library system has a decent selection so I just borrow them. I read when I can and listen to the audiobook whenever I'm in my car or out in the garage smoking.

May work for you, may not. Herfing

I wish I could recall the titles of other books I read about Interment and the war record of soldiers recruited from the camps. If I returned to the Azusa, CA public library, I could point out the shelves of WWII books I read. Now I use an App to track the books I have to read and the ones I have read.

My Father, who had a plant nursery for a while. He spoke of the time when the Japanese were told they had a short time to prepare, selling off property for a loss and taken to away. He thought it was unfair and a terrible thing to happen to good people.

The hard cover book was delivered last night. The audiobook is a good idea, I've been considering them. I used to work with a guy that liked them, first on cassettes then CDROMs. He had a longer commute and finished them long enough before the due date to let me listen to them and mail them back. Not as good as live pronunciation, but when reading books on the Kindle app for my iPhone I can highlight a word and look it up and get a text/computer pronunciation.

As an avid reader of technical books over non-fiction,I tend to assign proxy names to difficult names in books. It started when I was required to read Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, characters with not one but several unpronounceable names. Brick wall

Empire of the Summer Moon.
S.C. Gwynne


The vast, semi-arid grasslands of the southern Great Plains could be dominated by hunters and warriors on horseback. In the first half of the nineteenth century, the Comanches, often referred to as “lords of the Plains,” were the single most powerful military force in the region, to the frustration of both the Mexican and U.S. governments. In this engrossing chronicle, award-winning journalist Gwynne traces the rise of the Comanche people from their roots as primitive bands of hunter-gatherers to their mastery of the horse and emergence as the feared power brokers of the area. At the center of the narrative is the charismatic Quanah Parker, who skillfully navigated the gaps between his traditional culture and the emerging, settled culture of the late-nineteenth century. Quanah was the son of a Comanche warrior and a woman named Cynthia Ann Parker, who was kidnapped at the age of nine and chose to stay with the Comanches. Quanah was a brilliant, feared war chief who guided his people in adapting to new realities after their final suppression by the U.S. Calvary. An outstanding addition to western-history collections. --Jay Freeman

The Forgotten 500: The Untold Story of the Men Who Risked All for the Greatest Rescue Mission of World War II
By Gregory A. Freeman

A great WWII story you probably never heard about. A great and long suppressed story from WWII. How Yugoslavian Serbian anti nazi fighters protected and sheltered nearly Five Hundred Allied air crew members from the navies until the US OSS rescued them. This in spite of strong efforts of communist moles attempting to stop the rescue to aid their efforts to hand control of post war Yugoslavia to the Soviets.

Read that last year...very good read...

followed up with "Killers of the Flower Moon," by David Grann...bitter story about the Osage tribe discovering oil on their seemingly barren and worthless reservation land in Oklahoma...and how they were murdered and exploited by white men...and how the investigations of those murders led to the birth of the FBI

Details are hazy for me. I remember he was the, or one of the OG agents and the movie covers a few different cases. But I do recall one of them involved murdered natives on a reservation

If not from here then a myriad of sources. Could be friends recommending something, seeing an author’s name and then checking out their writings, the Aaron Rodgers Book Club via the Pat McAfee Show, or flashing on something I read in h.s. or college and wanting to re-read it.

try looking at the New York Times best seller lists on Amazon...have several categories like fiction and non-fiction, combined e-books, hardcover and paperbacks, how-to, personal and misc, childrens...

I tend to review and buy books written by authors I've enjoyed.

I also trade books with a couple of friends who enjoy reading.

Nah, just go back to the beginning of this thread and pick out books until you reach the current entry. I bet there’s a plethora of great books.

Hmm, now that I said that, that’s something I should do too. Anxious

In addition to "Empire of the Summer Moon", am concurrently listening to "The Book of Five Rings" by Miyamoto Musashi as well as thumbing through "The Illustrated Book of Five Rings". Cool to see woodblock prints and pictures of armor and swords to envision both the time period and technology of the times.

Once I get past those two, next up will be: "The Answer Is..." by Alex Trebek.

The JBL Story - 60 Years of Audio Innovation by John M. Eargle

My speaker guy lent this to me today, due back in a couple of months so putting a stop of other books and other distractions (…sorry Dan…). More pictures and diagrams than text so I should be able to go through this rather quickly. I’ll be more interested in the Consumer Products chapter but the broad array of product lines should still be entertaining.

Hate Inc
Matt Taibbi

In this characteristically turbocharged new book, now in a new post-election edition, celebrated Rolling Stone journalist Matt Taibbi provides an insider’s guide to the variety of ways today’s mainstream media tells us lies. Part tirade, part confessional, it reveals that what most people think of as “the news” is, in fact, a twisted wing of the entertainment business.

In the Internet age, the press have mastered the art of monetizing anger, paranoia, and distrust. Taibbi, who has spent much of his career covering elections in which this kind of manipulative activity is most egregious, provides a rich taxonomic survey of American political journalism’s dirty tricks.

After a 2020 election season that proved to be a Great Giza Pyramid Complex of invective and digital ugliness, Hate Inc. is an invaluable antidote to the hidden poisons dished up by those we rely on to tell us what is happening in the world.
320 pages • Paperback ISBN 978-1-68219-260-3 • E-book 978-1-68219-259-7.

(End of professional write up).

My Thoughts…
Halfway through. How a book can be so unexpectedly refreshing (a mid lefty reporter) strips it all down for a warts and all look at the media. The chit storms, half truths and The Sides not being dishonest as much as committing sins of knowing omission.

Refreshing and also infuriating. At least a few times a night, I read passages from the book emphasizing the bs Taibbi has written. Conspiracy Theories give away to Conspiracy Fact.

Vindicated are the people who “knew” CNN, FOX News, and MBCSN are universally untrustworthy. Lost are still those looking for Cronkite style news of the 70s. Little spin and closing with And that’s the way it is….

Just about nobody tells us the way it is any longer. Taibbi is a flicker of light.
