Abstract:

"This book comprehensively charts the discovery and repatriation between 1950 and 1975, of so-called 'stragglers' - Japanese soldiers who had remained in hiding overseas, unwilling to believe the war was over - still fighting the Second World War on the edges of former battlefields in South-East Asia and the Pacific. It explores their return to Japan and their impact on the Japanese people, revealing changing attitudes to war veterans and war casualties' families, as well as the ambivalence of memories of the war."--BOOK JACKET.
