After the takeover of Ie Shima, the workers have to clean up the huge
made by the tremendous bombing. Homes and stores were destroyed. The
attack was against military targets but everyone suffers. WW2 was a war of
complete takeover, where later wars were more police actions with complete
different results where the battle continued the whole time. Here they
clean up and rebuild, but now it seems like destruction just continues,
and continues more and more.
