Found this in TV Tropes. Damn, Son!

  • World War 2 example: 442nd Infantry Regiment of the United States Army famously rescued the "Lost Battalion" at Biffontaine in southern France. Over a five-day period, from October 26 to October 30, 1944, the 442nd suffered the loss of nearly half of its roster. Over 800 casualties, including 121 dead. While rescuing 211 members of the 36th Infantry Division's 1st Battalion, 141st Infantry, which had been surrounded by German forces in the Vosges mountains since October 24. What is more extraordinary is that they volunteered for this duty after the other regiments in the area refused. What is more extraordinary is that they were Japanese-Americans, many of whom had families held in internment camps back home in the USA.

    • The 442nd were renowned for a truly absurd amount of bravery. They finished the war with more decorations per capita than any unit in American history. Among the awards was an astounding 21 Medals of Honor, one awarded posthumously in 1946 and 20 awarded over 50 years later in 2000.

      • They were also one of the rare regiments that went well over 100% casualty (more soldiers killed and injured than were on the original roster) over the course of the war.

I had a friend who's grandfather was part of the 442nd. His family was at the Manzanar internment camp while he was out in Europe.

  • The Walther P38/P1 used by the German army from 1939 to about 2004 was so infamous for its inaccuracy, due to a ludicrously-heavy double-action trigger pull, that soldiers said that its firepower was "eight warning shots and one aimed throw."

As I said before, don't just copy and paste something without adding anything yourself. Also there is an edit button for a reason, you don't have to keep making new comments, just edit your post if you need to add something more.
