European-Axis combatants after May 1945?

Post by Komi » 04 Feb 2021 21:40

I have heard (but can't verify) that there were some German and Italian submariners who chose to continue fighting the war alongside Japan after the German surrender in May 1945. Is this true? And were there any other cases of European-Axis personnel who continued the fight in Asia/Pacific after May 1945, either autonomously or under direct Japanese command?
