>During World War II, Japanese-held *Yap* was one of the islands bypassed in the U.S. “island-hopping” strategy, although it was regularly bombed by U.S. ships and aircraft, and *Yap*-based Japanese bombers did some damage in return. The Japanese garrison comprised 4,423 IJA men under the command of Colonel Daihachi Itoh and 1,494 IJN men.
