Description

Ichiuji talks more about his combat experiences, going back to Naples to wait for replacements, before being sent back to France, liberating the town of Bruyeres and the rescue of the Lost Battalion. The 522nd would continue on through the French Riviera, dealing with shelling throughout their time. Ichiuji would continue on, volunteering to be a forward observer, and breaking the Siegfried Line. After this, they would move up through Austria, liberating the Dachau sub camps. He discusses seeing the starved Jewish prisoners, and talks about the parallels between the Jewish and the Japanese American citizens with their governments.
