Nisei soldier's caption: Margioso, Ham near a house. Germans surrenders in Italy, Finito La Guerra. After running all over Northern Italy the victory was in sight for us. The Germans finally gave up May 1945. What a relief it was, no more fighting. Now what we were going to do was a big question. After a few days we encamped near Genoa for a short period then moved again to some Italian barracks in Novi Ligure and stayed there for a couple of weeks.

May 1945
