The Lyrics

This one open for WW2 historians and those that like Weird War II controversy!!! In 1867 when the US purchased Alaska from the Russian Empire it also got many of the Rat Islands that included one very strange one- Kiska (Aleut- Qisca). Prior to Japanese invasion in July 1942 there were just 10 US service men there and a dog operating a meteorological station. The Japanese took the island easily and fortified it in fall '42-early '43... but strange things began to happen. Some accounts indicate that "sea serpents" attacked ships and ate sailors that fell into the waters. Other Japanese soldiers were literally sucked out of their posts by strange shadow winds that pulled them out to sea! US bombers hit the island twice and killed not one Japanese soldier out of a 5200 men garrison on an island 6' wide and 22' long! Then the USS Grunuion sub disappeared in Oct 1942 and was missing for over 60 years when discovered off Kiska in shallow water by 2007- even though all the WW2 searches failed to find the sub nearby which had sunk 3 Japanese sub killers but ironically was sunk by a Japanese armed frieghter. The sub fired 7 torps and 6 all hit and bounced away as duds while number 7 hit the engine room. The frieghter used its 80mm deck gun to strike a direct hit on the sub that limped away and then vanished from both sides! As the US gained strength and prepared to re-take the island the Japanese garrison left under impenetrable fog in July 1943. The fog was so bad that all the Japanese vessels were not seen nor heard of and so when the island retaking began in Aug 1943, the 35,000 US and Candian troops wandered around and shot each other causing friendly fire that killed up to 200 men and wounded more. Japanese booby traps killed more and a supply ship struck a mine killing 87 men! A disaster. Seems that the Japanese and the Allies had bad troubles with that island and no one wants to talk about what went on there in any great detail. What's even crazier is that the Japanese left on July 28, 1943 and the US invaded on August 15, 1943 and found several dogs and fresh made coffee. How could the coffee be fresh with no one on the island and it was 17 days after the Japanese left and the weather was horrible!!! Talk about creepy!
Some strange happenings
WW2 Kiska Island, some weird things
Japanese lost men to sea serpents* and wind beings**
200+ killed when island re-taking

Some strange happenings
Jap armed freighter sunk a submarine***
Two US bombings didn’t do a thing****
200+ killed when island re-taking

Some strange happenings
Japanese freaked-out and decided not to stay
Fog became their friend
Warships unaware that 5000 slipped away
Searched in vain, for the Jap garrison…

[Friendly fire killed a lot of men (US-Canadian)]

WW2 Kiska Island, some weird things
Japanese lost men to sea serpents* and wind beings**
200+ killed when island re-taking
* sea serpents= Tizheruk
** wind beings= Jakri
*** submarine= USS Grunion
**** Two US bombings started on approach with fair weather but as soon as they were within range of the island the weather turned violently bad!
Also, the lone dog with the Americans at the invasion was theirs and was removed with the Japanese evacuation, so where did the other packs of dogs come from on a deserted island???

I've never heard of these things on Kiska Island before. Very bizarre indeed. 5-5-5. One other thing though, if you know due to your knowledge of Third Reich things- did a giant German seaplane actually shoot down a British bomber in 1943? I'm not sure, but my aviation friends say a firm "yes!" So, is it true?

WW2N, yes, an armed Bv-222 shot down a Navy Liberator which was mistakenly reported as a Lancaster! Further mistakes were made with Bv-222 history when the opposite was claimed- that a Lanc got a 222! In fact, that was a British Beaufighter! And a Hawker Tempest strafed two when moored. Several others fell to enemy fighters and some were lost in accidents. At the time, the Bv-222 was the largest aircraft of WW2 and largest to make a kill. It was surpassed by the giant Bv-238 variant that was strafed by marauding Mustangs late in the war. regarding Kiska, there are even stranger stories of WW2 like the dead LW pilot that landed his aircraft in Frnace after being killed 20 minutes earlier over Britain and tales of the SS fighting a Yeti-type monster ("Man-Thing") in Tibet! The mystery "Foo Fighters" that plagued US aircraft in the ETO and PTO were later discovered to be German secret weapons covered under classified files as PHOO BOMBS, so no UFO nor angel theories! And there was weather manipulation too. Let me see if I can find my article on that...

Some other interesting stuff:

Note: The Bv-222 has another purpose that is seldom mentioned either online or in books- that it was considered for the Amerika Bomber program AND it was Hitler's last escape plane on stand-by in Norway. Hitler's pilot Bauer was NOT allowed to test the Ju-390, denied by Himmler himself... so he chose the Bv-222 b/c it ran off diesel that meant it could be refueled by U-boat at sea. Its range therefore would be unlimited as long as there were U-boats along the way which gives credibility to the conspiracy theorists that say Hitler escaped to S America as there is no real proof of the claimed suicide and body burning; in fact, Hitler's doppelganger was ordered to the bunker and shot in the head which did not fool the Russians. IF any part of Hitler would have been captured the remains would be on display in a museum in Moscow. Stalin postwar told the Allies several times that he had no idea where Hitler went, so the scandalous reports of NKVD moves in what was to become E Germany are absolutely false as is the wrong skull fragment. And the stories of his PPK and cyanide capsule death doesn't make any sense either as the bite on the pill would mean instant death so no time to pull the trigger and vice versa. No proof of the bodies surviving either in skeletal form. Even Bormann was found in the 1970s, but still nothing on Hitler and Eva except for 4 Nazi stories that are conflicting. Bormann had to use surface streets led by an armored vehicle and was hit by artillery fragments, buried in rubble. Hitler had access to the underground autobahn that still exists as well as a rescue by Hanna Reitsch to N Germany and then by Bauer to Norway via Bv-222 and then S America via Type XXI U-boat OR flown by Anna Kreisling in a Ju-390 IF one was released from the SS. More than 2 official Ju-390s were built b/c 1 was kept on stand-by in Norway, 1 was in Poland, and another in S Germany (the one SS Gen Kammler escaped in with the Bell Device). None of these were V-prototypes but unmarked A-0s with no recorded serials and no connection to Goering, the LW, or the RLM. The SS had its own aircraft assembly points in Thuringia, the Schwarzwald, Silesia, and at Arado- Brandenburg. The SS built German disc craft, the Reichenberg IV suicide craft, Me-262 in component form, and took over the Ba-349 Natter VTO rocket plane. FYI

I once met the son of General Simon Bolivar Buckner, the US general killed on Okinawa. Buckner took part in the invasion of Attu, in the Aleutians. From what I was told, the Japanese had effectively abandoned the garrison on Attu, telling them there was no transport available to get them off the island. Had the US waited to invade, the Japanese would have starved to death, averting a major battle and massive US casualties. When I was younger, so much younger than today, I read an article about the disappearance of Martin Bormann. It was speculated at the time (early 1960's) that Bormann was hiding out in South America. Every Sunday at Saint Rose's Church, I would see a man sitting a couple rows from me who looked just like the photo of Bormann in "Reader's Digest". I thought about turning him in for the reward. I guess it's a good thing I didn't know where the FBI office in Kansas City was located. About 15 or 16 years ago, a fellow living in Kansas City, Kansas was identified by someone as having been a concentration camp guard during WWII. He went out on his porch and began waving a revolver in the air. The local police shot and killed him. One of the last casualties of the war.

Japs ate by sea serpents and sucked out to sea? Brilliant-5s! My history teacher will be shocked to say the least. This could be a tv show, 'Kiska Island' and I'd bet it would be better than 'Survivor' ever was!
