Synopsis for "Day Five: Wind"

Lt. Smith comes up with a plan to send in some Stuart Tanks to rescue "the Alamo Boys." Major General "Blood and Guts" opts to send in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team along with Lt. Smith and the Stuarts. He decides to personally take command of this mission. Meanwhile, Rock and the gang anxiously await another air-drop supplies attempt, as they are desperate for provisions.

Private Barney Sakai, of the 442nd, gets shot while trying to take the high ground. In bloody rage, he ties a scarf around his head and charges like a madman! This rallies the rest of the Japanese-American troops of the 442nd and they attack! They succeed in punching a hole through enemy lines, however, brave Private Barney Sakai suffers a fatal shot through the neck. Unfortunately, the Nazis won't take this sitting down and prepare plans to finally crush "the Lost Battalion" once and for all!

Trivia

The character of Sid Richardson was a gesture of thanks to the advice of war correspondent historian Lee Bishop, who suggested telling the story through a war correspondent's eyes to Billy Tucci. Tucci then drew the two panels with the character based on photos of Bishop in a war correspondent uniform. The character was named after Bishop's grandfather, though the real life Sid Richardson was not a war correspondent nor left the US during WW2.
