In the very beginning of my book there was a scene where Louie and Phil were in the ocean on the raft surrounded by sharks. This is one instance of foreshadowing because it showed that they would be shot down in their plane. Another instance was when they talked about the islands and how they were trying to steer the raft toward them, even though they were Japanese controlled. It foreshadowed that they would end up as POWs on a Japanese prison camp. The first instance was very obvious, but the second one was subtle. It just said that the islands were Japanese controlled. I don't believe that they could have predicted being shot down, but they all believed they would be captured by the Japanese.
