  • Duration: 27:30
  • Country: Canada
  • A powerful 30-minute documentary about the Chinese-Canadians who served in W.W.II. and who, later, won the rights to vote and to full Canadian citizenship. Through the eyes of men like Sgt. Roy Chan, who trained head-hunters in guerilla warfare against the Japanese, we discover details about what really happened. And why, for years, the Canadian government asked them not to talk about "Operation Oblivion", a top secret mission into China. A candid, first-person account that takes us into the heart of a little-known aspect of Canadian military history.
