THREE MONTHS AFTER THE JAPANESE SURRENDER ONE MAN WAS STILL FIGHTING THE WAR . . .
He was Captain Sakae Oba of the Japanese Army. And he refused to accept the disgrace of defeat. Even after the American presence on the tiny island of Saipan swelled to over one hundred thousand. Captain Oba and his loyal band of followers continued to confuse and torment occupying American forces.
And when Captain Oba did surrender, it was on his terms and with honor. On his surrender he was feted at an American officers' club and treated with both respect and admiration.
This is Captain Oba's story.
