With legal questions resolved, and a widespread public and official determination to bring Japan to justice, the Australian prosecutions began in November 1945 with great impetus. Trials began at venues around the Pacific, in Asia and in Darwin. Though the original schedule for the number of prosecutions was ambitious, early progress was good. The trials encountered headwinds in 1947, however, and resourcing them became a problem. Progress eventually slowed and the trials entered a period of uncertainty.
