Several military officials and most of those included in the Administration already believed that before the troops would be returned to their respective communities, they had to be educated in such a way that would still bring about positive impacts on the colonial government, and that a control operation that encompassed these men was to be employed. The various communications and welfare measures earlier employed in the war were some of the means for avoiding the soldier's negative influences when they were repatriated. However, since there were several delays in the repatriation even after Hitler's downfall, questions and even violent confrontations were increasingly emerging. This chapter attempts to discuss the Army education measures, the demobilization of the troops, and other such aspects of the post-war setup.

Keywords:   Administration, Army education, demobilization, war, negative influences, repatriation
