This chapter discusses the year when the prisoners of war (POWs) were freed from their Japanese oppressors. This seemed evident in the inability of the Japanese to protect and adequately feed their prisoners. Those POW who still remained in Japanese camps were shuffled from place to place due to the constant threat posed by the American air power. The end of the year brought freedom to the POWs and Internees, who were shocked by the skill, scale, and modernity of the fleets and personnel that had rapidly formed to carry them home.
