Japanese holdouts

Post by spoerjm2 »

Be advised that there is a fantastic book regarding one of the last of the holdouts. What was interesting is that every means possible was taken to inform the holdouts that the war was over. They used dropped leaflets, loudspeakers and many other efforts. The holdouts thought that all of the means taken were to trick them and that the war was still on. Check it out.
