There is a belief among many that this is a hoax.

this may be a hoax, but dozens of japanese soldiers have been found as late as the 80's.

No, they identified the men, and found their military records. I doubt it's a hoax.

Actually I read a story about this earlier, and it may turn out that they indeed knew that the war was over, but chose to stay in the village that they were residing in. One of them even had a family there.
