My dad was on Okinawa. not pretty Japanese delayed their arrival after


surrendering and coming to US base to switch to US aircraft to go sign. For 3 days, US troops thought they had been duped and they were going to get bombed. Enemy finally showed up and were amazed at US aircraft, equipment etc. Early island days, enemy civilians and military hiding in caves on the island and coming out to fight..ugly.
