Tokushima in Joe SteeleEdit

During World War II, the island of Shikoku had been bypassed in the fighting. While cities such as Tokushima had been bombed, they hadn't been fought over by ground forces. This left the residents more restive than those in other parts of Japan but US servicemen still preferred to go there when on leave. The waterfront district of Tokushima had been quickly built up to provide entertainment and services for those on leave and to smoothly separate them from their money while doing so.[1]

Sergeant Mike Sullivan and Corporal Dick Shirakawa were coming back from leave in Tokushima, South Japan, when the Japanese War broke out.
