      Yup! I actually purchased his autobiography No Surrender and read it. His story is utterly fascinating. It's actually one of the main reasons that motivated me to get that WW2 IJA tropical field cap that I posted on here a while ago.

        Every time I hear about this person, I think about the episode of 'Gilligan's Island' when a WWII Japanese soldier comes to the island in a mini-submarine and takes the seven castaways prisoner as he believes the war has not ended. Ironic that the episode was filmed in 1967, seven years prior to this incident.

          Pretty interesting.

          I can imagine that he might not have wanted to live in the world in his mind after the loss to the US.
