    [QUOTE=drumminman;1930183]1952 here too, when all this stuff happened:

    WW II Pacific peace treaty takes effect/QUOTE]

    Thanks for the history lesson. However. I'm confused, I thought the WW2 ended in 45, so what took them so long to come up with a peace treaty, or does it always take that long after a war ends?

    I am always talking about knowing history... why is this not taught in school?

    Essentially a "technicality" since Japan had already "surrendered" in 1945 and the U.S. OCCUPATION that pretty much "restructured" the Japanese Gov't and family and tore apart its military capacity had already begun in August of 1945 and had certainly accomplished its most significant changes by the early '50s--one of my Grad Profs was a senior member of that occupation force. That U.S occupation lasted about a decade--during that time America wielded the real power in Japan. A number of Treaties were precipitated in the early '50s, mostly in response to the Cold War.

    1946, I waited till the end of WWII before arriving. Better said, my father came home on leave from the RAF at Christmas and I was born September 25th. It must have been a right Merry Christmas!
