Shoichi Yokoi was a Japanese sergeant in the Imperial Japanese Army during the Second World War. He was among the last three Japanese holdouts to be found after the end of hostilities in 1945, discovered almost 28 years after US forces had regained control of the island in 1944. He knew about the end of the war, but he feared coming out of hiding.
