The conflict in this story is when all of the japanese soldiers wake up with guns pointed at them. All of the japanese soldiers are treated awful and are told if they mess up once they will be shot. The lieutenant, lieutenant Sweet is the meanest and most racist.
The conflict in this story increases when the twenty four japanese soldiers are awoken in the middle of the night and sent on an island to receive their jobs. Each soldier will be working with a dog. Their basic procedure is to hide and then when the dog is coming put horse meat on their throats and let the dog eat it off of them. Then things start to get worse, the dogs actually have to attack them when they have gear on.
The climax is the point in the story when the final test of the dogs is. The dog has to find and attack Eddy and not the americans. They all have to go and hide to see when the dog finds Eddy. The test is based on scent. The Americans think that the japanese people will have a scent and the dog is supposed to attack Eddy over the americans because of his japanese scent.
The falling action in this story is when the dog, doesn't attack Eddy, but an american man part of the testing. This means all of their work had failed but, they no longer need to be used as dog bait.
The resolution in this story is when the project is not a success and all of the japanese soldiers are sent to Japan to fight with the real soldiers.

You, you, and you," he said, pointing to me, Chik, and Slim. "Take two shovels and a third of these sacks and go up there above the high-tide line and dig out a pit big enough for two men and a machine gun.
Do I have to tell you how to find the high-water mark?"

The flare rocketed straight up, then arched over and fell slowly, shooting into the sea. But we were a long way from anyone who might see it.
