http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/4585287.stm Now that's dedication. One wonders if the court martial they fear is for deserting or for fighting for the Imperial Army against the Americans.
There is a belief among many that this is a hoax.
Link leads to Microsoft's home page. Hoax.
this may be a hoax, but dozens of japanese soldiers have been found as late as the 80's.
It wouldn't surprise me if it was actually true, here is a better link to the story: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pacific/4589115.stm
No, they identified the men, and found their military records. I doubt it's a hoax.
does any1 of u have a link to verified news about the old (true) story, where they found a japanese soldier in the late 60s i guess, still waitin in the jungle with boobytraps around him to fight against the usa? i tried google but didnt find anything helpful...
when this new story came up i told some friends about the old story but no1 believed me... but even my teacher back in school taught us it really happened. so am i right?
thx 4 help :D
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.
