  2. Thanks for the link janner.

    I like photos of this type, though they are all interesting, the final shot and story of the Japanese soldier who stayed in the jungle for 30 years not believing the war was over is amazing.

    I am sure there are many more story's of this kind, it is crazy!!

    I've just read the book on his experiences, it didn't always seem to hang together, but it is hard to say why. I think that it was probably heavily edited to cut out the "Nasty" bits and so loses something along the way. Still worth a read though
  4. What is the title of the book janner, i am interested in reading that.

    Thanks Janner. That revived a few memories for me. As a 15 year old I attended one of the last War Crimes Trials. Field Marshall Eric von Manstein was tried in Hamburg in 1948. A memory that lives with me.
  6. NO SURRENDER: MY 3O YEAR WAR by Hiroo Onoda. He emerged from the jungle in March 1974 and was relieved from duty by a Japanese senior officer, so technically, he never did surrender.
  7. Thank you. :thumbup:
