FOR THE ARMED FORCES
V-E Day + 6 Weeks-183rd Week of U.S. Participation in the War
American forces smashing into southern Okinawa prepared to scribble finis to one of the greatest battles of the Pacific
campaign. The war in the Pacific, mounting in an unprecedented intensity, sent Australian troops this week into British
Borneo while mighty armadas of American B-29s pounded Japan's industrial and commercial centers. Keeping pace
with the Allied offensive against Japan, Chinese troops this week raced from the north and west to within striking distance
of airbase cities in southern China. Indo-China offensive continued with Chinese spearheads less than 10 miles away.
