TORRANCE — A book-signing for “Nikkei Generals and Admirals,” which features profiles of Japanese Americans who have advanced to the highest ranks of the U.S. military, will take place on Wednesday, April 27, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Toyota Auto Museum, 19600 Van Ness Ave., Torrance.
The book was authored by Ansho Mas Uchima and Min Shinmoto who conducted more than five years of research. There are 42 generals and admirals of Japanese ancestry listed with 38 biographies. According to these officers, their achievements were mainly due to the achievements of the Nisei soldiers of the 100th Battalion/442nd Regimental Combat Team.
Former Assemblymember George Nakano will be the master of ceremonies.
