I remember hearing from the Karate Kid that Miyagi's regiment was the 442nd, and he had a medal of honor.

Later, I watched a WWII documentary, and the 442nd really was one of the most decorated.

Is there a wargame that captures the 442nd's time in the war? I just thought the documentary was interesting, so maybe a game captured their time in the war.

Thanks guys!!

There is a Panzer Grenadier module Panzer Grenadier: Go for Broke which is about the 442nd. Unfortunately, it is an expansion and requires several other PG games: "ownership of Panzer Grenadier: 1940 – The Fall of France, Panzer Grenadier: Elsenborn Ridge and Panzer Grenadier: Battle of the Bulge is required to enjoy all of the scenarios". I'm not sure how many of the components of these games are really required.

EDIT: The GMT magazine C3i #20, has a Combat Commander scenario of the 442nd.

The upcoming Beyond the Rhine has a counter for the 442nd. The game covers the Northwest European campaign from September to April. The 442nd fought with the 7th Army before being sent back to Italy.

Make sure to watch the movie "Go For Broke". A little cheesy as many immediate post-WWII movies, but still good.
