Today's island holiday paradise has changed the final direction of World War II
Saipan today, this holiday paradise during World War II is an important battlefield between Japan and the United States in the Pacific War. Riding on a mountain road in northern Saipan, when you see a pile of scattered cannons and tank wrecks on the cliff, the Japanese Last Command Post arrives.
Through these rusty tanks and bombardment cannons, a staircase leads to the headquarters of the headquarters hidden behind the boulder. This hidden fortress cleverly uses the barrier of the terrain and is hard to find under the cover of the front cliff. The fortress filled with bullet marks and craters is also the final destination of the highest commander of the Japanese army stationed in Saipan. After the general trend has gone, it is here to kill itself.
The last command
on Saipan, there is such a famous tourist attraction, called the last command, which is also the Japanese base camp of the Battle of Saipan during World War II.
The Japanese army of that year was strategically deployed here. It is a bunker in the middle of the mountain. It is made of some reinforced concrete, surrounded by the original jungle. Because the position of the command was particularly hidden, the US military search did not find it many times. When the continuous strike entered the late war, the US military carried out a carpet bombing of the entire northern mountainous area until it was bombarded and blown here. The war in Saipan is coming to an end.
At present, there are some combat equipment traces such as the cannon tanks at the headquarters outside, but the headquarters is empty, leaving only one site, but we can still see the headquarters being penetrated by missiles. Even if this is the case, the headquarters has not collapsed. After nearly a hundred years of events, it is also very strong. We have to serve the Japanese.
The final headquarters of the Japanese Army is about 5 minutes drive from the Blue Hole, and several attractions in the north are very close.
The command of the Japanese army in the Second World War was in the cave below the cliff. Finally, the Japanese army who had been able to resist the defense could not withstand the attack of the US military. The Japanese commander-in-chief committed suicide here, and both sides suffered heavy casualties.
There are still remnants of wars such as tanks and artillery during World War II. It was originally an underground storage of atomic bombs. The atomic bomb B29, which was released to Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan during the Second World War, was loaded from here. Now the site is full of phoenix flowers, it is a small park full of green, but you can still see the bunker on the wall rock and the remains of the chariot.
