Opening Narration: Though peace had finally come to Europe in the summer of 1945, America was still faced with the considerable task of bringing the war in the Pacific to victory. It was a time of uncertainty, both for those on the home front and for the troops still overseas. During that summer my brother, Jim-Bob, was to face a personal crisis at home, while my brother Ben fought for his very survival as a prisoner of war.
Closing Narration: Kathy left the following morning, and if Jim Bob ever saw her again he never mentioned it. He was quiet for the remainder of his furlough, and even Elizabeth stopped teasing him, for she was growing up, too.
The German episode title is "Ein unerwarteter Besuch", meaning "An Unexpected Visit".
