In 1941, Japan started the Pacific War and drafted Taiwanese indigenous youths to conduct guerilla warfare in the South Pacific. Many of them died in battle and never returned. Those who surviced have grown old. Those Taiwanese that fought for Japan have yet to receive compensation from the Japanese government. This is a historical account that is little known by the young people of Taiwan, but will never be forgotten by elderly Taiwanese.
