    Four-Four-Two, F Company at War The 442nd Regimental Combat Team was an infantry regiment in the United States Army comprised of Americans of Japanese ancestry. The 442nd fought in Italy and France during World War II against the German Army of Hitler's Third Reich. The 442nd earned a reputation for being a crack infantry unit and the regiment and its men received considerable battle honors and individual medals of valor.
    This film follows the exploits of "F" Company through the letters of 1st Sergeant Jack Wakamatsu and interviews of five "F" Company veterans who recall in vivid detail their experiences from witnessing the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor to the Banzai charge on a hill in France where "F" Company wiped out a German company. In archival footage from the National Archives, "F" Company is seen moving up to the frontline the day before they launched their attack for the French town of Bruyeres. Filmmaker Peter Wakamatsu, son of 1st Sergeant Jack Wakamatsu, has created a unique war documentary in which the story is told through the eyes of the men who fought in combat.

Dangerous swarms of killer bees, however, can be controlled to the point that they can be worn as a human bee suit. But beyond the power of sheer numbers, increasingly complex and organized swarms eventually give rise to swarm intelligence that allows complex decisions to be made. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
