Judy Hyland set out for China in 1940 to work as a missionary teacher. Because of the worsening war situation, she was directed to the Philippine Islands, where she was to study Chinese language until it would be feasible to enter China. When the Japanese invaded the Philippines in December 1941, she was interned, and lived in various prison camps until liberated by the American military on February 4, 1945. In the Shadow of the Rising Sun documents, in part, this experiece.
