These assorted accounts of internment provide details of what happened to missionaries from the moment of arrest until their release. One key difference between internment in Japan and internment in countries occupied by Japan appears to have been the duration, with missionaries spending less time captive in Japan than elsewhere. Accounts also suggest Japanese guards treated captives in their own country with more courtesy than captives in countries they occupied.
