"the BBC was forbidden from broadcasting their story and this remarkable saga was locked away in the archives, until now."
"After D-Day, the Free India Legion, which had now been drafted into Himmler's Waffen SS, were in headlong retreat through France, along with regular German units.
It was during this time that they gained a wild and loathsome reputation amongst the civilian population.
The former French Resistance fighter, Henri Gendreaux, remembers the Legion passing through his home town of Ruffec: "I do remember several cases of rape. A lady and her two daughters were raped and in another case they even shot dead a little two-year-old girl.""
India does not celebrate VE day or VJ day. They fought on both sides of the war.
Left wing? He was a right-wing nationalist whose followers killed Gandhi a few years later.
Like a lot of supposedly "breaking" stuff from the MSM (such as the "Secret German 1905 plan to invade the US, which I read about in a book 10 years ago) I'd previously heard of this from multiple sources. This isn't new or all that shocking.
This is nothing new. Short-sightedness of Indian leaders is a routine matter. Even today they think any critic of India must be a Paki. Bose felt the enemy of his enemy would be his friend. If Hitler would have won, he would be the first one in line to go to a concentration camp.
Indian Nazi troops.
Might be some fringe correlations there.
I recently read a chronology that fed a lot of freemasonry associated dates of the occult into the fray. It seems the 9th of November had significance with human executions or sacrifice in some occultic circles. Considering our WTC would be reversal of the numerals and a number of occultic links with the Al Quada, the fascination of the NAZIs with the occult associated with that part of the world, and this report. I wouldn't be too surprised if some linkage existed, although I'd come closer to associating it with evil people dabbling in the occult rather than any more significant affair.
Fascinating post. I'm a WWII and history buff, and I was glad to get to read this.
You think of Gandhi as a Hitler worshipper? Wonder what you think of this guy. Subhash Chandra Bose.
I dont much care what you say about Gandhi but this guy is my hero............
..............so......... govern your responses accordingly :)
There are a LOT of very significant stories that are intentionally overlooked. I have an uncle for example (great uncle on my mother's side actually) who was there at the time when a serious mutiny left 200 Americans dead. This is based on his own and the family's stories of course, but he and they are all credible yet I can find no record of such an event ever occuring.
This man was a highly decorated career soldier who was given an honor guard burial, so I tend to believe his accounts.
Yet, nothing at all in any historical record I can find.
If anyone here has access to that type of information, private message me and I'll provide what detail I have, including his name.
My point however, is that there are quite often very significant events which are intentionally not recorded for posterity.
Was Bose right or left-wing? I'm not sure the distinction is that relevant. The lines between right-wing and left-wing extremists can get hazy, especially when national independence is the main goal motivating them. Bose was a revolutionary action-oriented nationalist who disliked liberal democracies and would turn to anyone who seemed likely to support national liberation.
His association with Berlin and Tokyo makes people label him "right-wing" but there's a lot of uncertainty and guesswork involved in such a description. Bose was never attracted by Hitler's racial views and didn't feel at ease in Berlin. He literally made his way to Berlin through Moscow, and perhaps figuratively as well.
