Only the Brave tells the story of a Japanese unit in the U.S. Army in the 2nd World War II. Similarly in John Woo's Windtalkers here an almost forgotten episode of the war is told. We remember, after the attack on Pearl Harbor, nearly all American citizens of Japanese nationality interned because they generally suspected of espionage. Still in Hawaii was a regiment drawn up consisting of only Japanese. This unit was obviously not well respected and has been for almost the "dirty tasks" used in the war.
