The chapter opens with the author's experience on the morning on which the bombing of Pearl Harbour occurs, the ramifications of which have already reached his family. He finds his school confiscated by the military as well as a country expecting involvement in the war, in which they are not disappointed. The author and his family become wholly dependant on the radio for news of the war, and they soon learn that the outlook is grim: Malang and Java are soon invaded, and the entire country faces military occupation.
