In addition, Japan made a fortune by bilking Uncle Sam for war labor and materials. Japanese made vehicles (how many?) for ROKA and that helped launch the Japanese auto industry, which has cost Americans jobs.
Japan made a mess of what they made during that war. First off, the batteries for the R 300 radio that we used, were dead when we opened a new carton of them. Maybe one would work, if we were lucky. Japan also reconditioned much of what we used during 1951 and that was good for the junk pile. I remember it well.
