    In the Spring of 1974, 2nd Lt. Hiroo Onoda of the Japanese army made world headlines when he emerged from the Philippine jungle after a thirty-year ordeal. Hunted in turn by American troops, the Philippine army and police, hostile islanders, and eventually successive Japanese search parties, Onoda had skillfully outmaneuvered all his pursuers, convinced that World War II was still being fought and waiting for the day when his fellow soldiers would return victorious. This first-person account of those years of evading ... Show more

Interesting look into the human mind

by HistoryintheBuff on Apr 29, 2010

This is a very interesting look at how a person could remain true to an objective ignoring all the signs that their journey should be over. Hiroo Onoda is not an insane zealot, fighting on regardless of the reality he sees around him. He is a man with a deep sense of loyalty and courage who remained true to his honor. Rather than a failure to grasp the reality that is all around him, you see how the mind, entrenched in an expected belief, bends all other incoming information to fit with those expectations. This book offers a glimpse into the our own ideas and how we are all clouded by our own set of expectations. Onoda stayed in the jungle for 30 years. Do we remain fighting our own battle for a lifetime? See how one man spent a good portion of his life refusing to open to the possibility that his perceptions were wrong.
