71 - The Last Japanese Soldiers
We ALL know that World War II ended in 1945, right guys? Well a bunch of Japanese soldiers stationed on remote, jungle filled islands didn't get the memo... This is the story of one of those soldiers, Hiroo Onoda, who kept fighting for DECADES. Dozens of search parties were sent to find him. Surrender orders, leaflets and letters from his family were dropped, but nothing would bring him out of the jungle. That was until a young hippy went looking for the man that most people thought was dead.
