Description

Tsuda talks about his campaign experiences, starting with Anzio, where he would experience his first combat, and was involved in a very difficult barrage in a wheat field. The unit would move up from Anzio to Civitavecchia, and then to Belvedere. Throughout this route, they would be experience combat and experience some casualties, even getting hit with an artillery barrage while crossing a river. Tsuda details the routes of both the 100th Infantry Regiment and the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and the hardships they faced. He explains which battles were the hardest for him and where he received each of his medals. As his brother was also in the 100th Infantry Regiment, he would also occasionally see him during rest periods. After this, the unit would head to Arno River.
