    • In 1944, a year before the end of the War in the Pacific, on Saipan, remembered by the Japanese soldiers as the Suicide Island, there was a Japanese officer who was feared by the American troops.
      His name is Captain Sakae Oba. The US soldiers called him the Fox with a sense of awe. With stealth and unpredictability he undermined the enemy forces with his guerilla campaign. Being on an island that was under enemy control, Oba was prepared to fight them even if he was alone. For 16 months Captain Oba fought against the US forces to protect the lives of civilians. His troop was reduced to only 47 in the end. His courage and determination moved not just his own people but his foes alike…
