    Operation Valkrie -
    I knew about "The Bomb Plot" of 1944. But until a few years ago, i did not know of the wide reaching plan to Take Over The Reich...so to speak.
    It was huge.
    Hitler had the luck of The Devil.......

    I read this story about a member of the Japanese army who hid in an island in the Philippines for so many years. He believed that the war isn’t over, even though there was a surrender order released, he refused to believe in it, thinking it was just a trick made by the American soldiers. During his stay on the island, he killed some locals which he thought that they are soldiers in disguise. Thirty years had passed until he was discovered by another Japanese man who was exploring the island. He was pardoned by the president of the Philippines (who was also a dictator like the late Park Chung hee of South Korea) and surrendered his sword, rifle and ammunition.
