The Abandonment and the Inevitable: The Final Three Months before the Japanese Invasion of Guam in World War II By Daniel Owen Prepared for the 3rd Marianas History Conference and Guampedia

I based my theme for this paper, “The Defense of and the Aftermath of War on Guam” after having read the morning’s news for May 1, 2015. While relevant in subject matter, WAR, I will nonetheless approach the presentation from one angle which may have not been previously analyzed (from what I have researched) and to expand on some of my personal family accounts which were not detailed in my thesis. 3rd Marianas History Conference 2016 • Page 112
