The legendary investigator claimed in 1981 that he discovered a sunk Nazi submarine off the Turks and Caicos Islands, near the Bahamas. The crew of 20 were looking for the Pinta, one of three ships that sailed with Columbus to the “New World” in 1492. However, when Mr. Miklos dove below the surface of the ocean to search wreck, he would have found a German submarine – or a German submarine.

The explorer claimed the ship was part of a fleet of modified German submarines used to smuggle art, gold and senior Nazi officials out of Germany at the end of World War II .

Such theories have been put forward before, but Mr. Miklos also made the additional extraordinary claim that Hitler, his wife and Eva Braun were on board the submarine.

The allegations were examined in an episode of the new “Greatest Mysteries in History” series on the History Channel US.

The docuseries, which are presented and produced by Laurence Fishburne, follow a team of experts as they attempt to retrace Mr. Miklos’ footsteps and find the submarine.

As the documentary explains, there are certain facts that lend credibility to some of Mr. Miklos’ arguments.

JUST IN: Tragedy as missing toddler of British expatriate mother, 3, is found dead in burnt out car

Nazi submarines sailed the Caribbean, and at the end of World War II many Nazis managed to flee Germany to live in South America.

However, experts have questioned his most controversial claim about Hitler’s flight from Germany.

Diver and explorer Mike Fletcher, who is leading the search for the submarine, is among those to appear in “History’s Greatest Mysteries.”

Speaking about Mr Miklos’ claims, he said: “There is one thing he claims to be on the sub and I just said ‘wow!’.”

After Mr Miklos’ death in 2018, Mr Fletcher received the treasure hunter’s supply of documents on the possible location of the submarine.

The couple had retreated to the secret underground bunker at Hitler’s headquarters in the German capital, where they took cyanide capsules and Hitler also killed himself.

However, Mr Miklos said he spoke to Nazi hunters and retired German officers who convinced him Hitler faked his suicide and escaped on a modified submarine.

Mr Fletcher poured cold water on the theory that Hitler faked his own suicide and fled Germany aboard a submarine.

He said, “Do I believe Roger found a submarine?” Absoutely. Am I to believe the submarine was carrying gold and paintings looted in Europe after the war? It’s possible.

“But, do I think Hitler was on his submarine?” No.

“It’s obvious to me that Roger liked a good title. He loved being in front of the press camera.

“He needed attention. He needed to garner support for his idea. He needed the money from the investors.

“But more importantly, he needed a permit to return to the Turks and Caicos Islands to prove to the world that he had actually found a submarine.”

‘History’s Greatest Mysteries’ is available on the History Channel US.

The SouthCoast played a major role in WWII with a bit of history you may never have known.

During World War II, Taunton was the site of a prisoner of war camp. Because of this camp, Taunton actually officially requested that the United Nations Headquarters be on the site of the prison camp.

In 1942, shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States entered World War II. An embarkation center in Boston chose Taunton as their station, meaning 1.5 million troops passed through Camp Myles Standish before being dispatched to Europe.

“If you were to walk there today, you wouldn’t see anything that reminds you of the prison camp,” said Dr William Hanna, professor of history at Bridgewater State University. All that remains, he said, is a cave in honor of the Virgin Mary which was built by Italian internees.

The camp’s original role of training our soldiers changed and it became the Myles Standish prison camp for Italian and German captives.

“On the 1,620 acres – 1,620 for Myles Standish – you’ll find 35 miles of roads, 10 miles of railroad tracks, 1,500 buildings and a 16,000-seat amphitheater,” Hanna said.

The reason Taunton has such a large Italian community today, Hanna said, can be attributed to Italian prisoners of war. After the war, many local girls followed the soldiers to Italy and married them there before returning to Taunton to start a family.

German prisoners were a different situation. During the war, Italy surrendered and became one of our allies, unlike Germany. Hanna described in detail what a former German POW told her.

“I asked him how he was treated? He was only 17 when the parachutist was captured,” Hanna said. “He told me that most of the time he had been treated very well, but towards the end of his stay he said graphic photographs were returning from the liberation of the concentration camps, which showed some of the six million Jews. who had been slaughtered by the Nazis. We set them up so the POWs would know what Germany had done.

“A guard said to the young German: ‘Don’t think just because the war is over, that it is over for you, because you are going to be sent back to Europe and you are going to work, rebuilding the destroyed cities, Hitler said. Hanna said.

The whole story is told in detail at the Old Colony History Museum in Taunton, whose mission is to keep history alive.

What about Taunton and the United Nations?

“When the government was done with the Myles Standish camp, Taunton had to find a use for it, and if you can believe it the city actually requested that the UN headquarters be centered on this location,” Hanna said. .

Of course, the United Nations was ultimately located in New York, the first city of the United States.

“The locals did not understand why they finally chose Manhattan. It seemed to us that the solution was there,” thought Hanna.

HIGH EARTH, IND. (WTWO-WAWV) – Gus Tabor, 95, from Terre Haute, was 17 when he volunteered for the US Navy in World War II.

He started out in air transport, but he wanted to do something with submarines.
And even though his mother was against it, he was assigned to a submarine tender which is a
ship that supports submarines. He spent a lot of time in Guam, building a submarine base and he also performed deck duties on the USS Sperry and the USS Proteus.

It was dangerous… because the Japanese and the Americans fought a long and brutal battle in the Pacific.
now I wasn’t so sure I would live … but sure the US would win the war, yes
He says that as a member of the Sub Tender crew … he could … at any time be ordered to serve on a
under. But her young age, 17, prevented that from happening.

“There isn’t a submarine commander in the fleet who will be a 17-year-old kid on a first tour of duty with a submarine,” Tabor said.

When the war ended, he was asked to be part of an elite combat force called the Amphibious Scouts and Raiders, later known as the Navy SEAL. He spent several weeks training but when asked to sign up for 5 years he refused.

The reason, he had married a pretty Irishwoman from Connecticut named Catherine.

“She said I won’t marry a regular, if you stay in the Navy the answer is no,” Tabor recalled.

Gus served two more years in the North Atlantic as the United States monitored Soviet activity for
the Cold War.

After the service he worked for a while in Connecticut and then they returned to Terre Haute. Later in his career he worked for Union Carbide and then spent 20 years as a federal law enforcement officer at
the US federal prison in Terre Haute.

Bill Murray has done a lot of crazy things over the years, from crushing a White House press briefing to randomly applying for a job at an Asian restaurant. The eccentric Hollywood resident has a number of urban legends and myths circulating about him, enough to warrant a Tommy Avallone documentary titled The stories of Bill Murray: life lessons from a mythical man.

His appearances on Saturday Night Live were also deliciously bizarre and incredibly interesting. Murray left an indelible mark on SNL’s legacy with his wonderful performances, especially when he sang a beautifully erotic rendition of the Star wars theme. He even told Chevy Chase to “go fuck your wife, she needs it” on the set of the show while Chase commented that Neil Armstrong would have no trouble landing on Murray’s pockmarked face.

However, an even more memorable moment in the Bill Murray-SNL saga is when the actor accidentally declared World War III in the series. SNL already had a reputation for blending comedy and current affairs by generating hilarious and absurd news, but on this particular occasion it was taken very seriously as the Cold War drew to a close after an excruciatingly long period filled with paranoid anxiety. .

According to former SNL writer Don Novello, show producer Dick Ebersol ran to Murray during a commercial break and informed him that the USSR had invaded Poland. It was December 12, 1981, which meant that the forces of the USSR had yet to take any action, but the series producer was determined to make SNL the “comedy series that made America understand. that Russia has invaded Poland ”.

Novello revealed Murray was reluctant to do so and was also shocked by the news, but Ebersol convinced him to go through with it. Murray ended up taking the stage and asking people to show solidarity with the Polish population who were allegedly assaulted, affirming: “I guess that means it’s World War III.” Fortunately, this had no significant repercussions as no one viewed SNL as a serious news show and called this report another bizarre comedic piece.

As the Taiwan issue escalates tensions between the United States and China, a Google Maps user spotted what appears to be an American stealth bomber flying over cultivated fields. A Reddit user posted captures of the apparent plane alongside the coordinates as people’s fears about World War III continue to grow. Early reports that the plane was in Chinese airspace were quickly corrected.

Relations between China and the United States have deteriorated in recent months as China claims Taiwan, an island about 100 miles from its southeast coast. The United States supports Taiwan because it has said it does not want to be absorbed by China. This led to a war of words between the two superpowers, leaving the door open for a more physical escalation.

The increase in Chinese military activity in Taiwan has raised global concerns, including warplanes in Taiwanese airspace and ships off the coast. Now, with the new image unveiled, people think the United States is responding by sending planes over China, raising fears of WWIII.

Google users were amazed at what appears to be a stealth plane flying over fields, shaped like a B2 Stealth Bomber, a two-seater stealth aircraft designed during the Cold War. The Daily Star reported that a Reddit user posted screenshots of the image with the caption “Google maps may see stealth planes.” Google Maps images are retrieved from satellites or planes.

The gray arrow-shaped jet in the image is blurred as if it were moving at high speed. Early rumors that the plane was in Chinese airspace were later dismissed when the coordinates were revealed. It was seen on camera at coordinates 39 ° 01’18.5 ″ N, 93 ° 35’40.5 ″ W over cultivated fields in the United States.

Last month there were reports of an American warship passing through the Taiwan Strait despite rising tensions, as China threatens to take the country by force. China took this as the United States trying to increase tensions, and experts are now worried about what that might mean for the idea of ​​World War III.

Google Maps users were mesmerized by the sight of what appears to be a stealth plane flying over cultivated fields

An “American bomber plane” has been spotted on Google Maps flying in Chinese airspace as tensions between the two great powers increasingly unraveled over the question of Taiwan.

Relations have deteriorated in recent months as China declared its claim to Taiwan, an island about 100 miles from its southeast coast.

The United States has supported Taiwan – which do not want to being absorbed into China – and it created a war of words and fears of a more tangible war between the two nations battling to be the world’s premier power.

The increase in Chinese military activity in Taiwan, including warplanes in Taiwanese airspace and ships near the coast, has raised global concern.

And now some people think the United States – which has publicly supported Taiwan – is responding by sending warplanes into Chinese airspace.

Google Maps users were mesmerized by the sight of what appears to be a stealth plane flying over cultivated fields.

The craft resembles a US Air Force B2 stealth bomber, a two-seater stealth aircraft designed during the Cold War.

A Reddit user posted captures of the apparent aircraft with the caption: “Google maps can see stealth planes” and received 1.5,000 upvotes, reports the Star of the day.

The B-2 jet is capable of attack missions at any altitude up to 50,000 feet.

The gray arrow-shaped jet in the image appears to be moving so quickly that it is blurred on the camera at coordinates 39 ° 01’18.5 “N, 93 ° 35’40.5” E.

These coordinates belong to the Kazakh Autonomous County of Aksay, Jiuquan, Gansu, China, an area in the northwest of the country the size of Hawaii on the northern edge of the Tibetan Plateau, which is home to about 10,000 people.

Last month, reports revealed that a US warship had crossed the Taiwan Strait despite mounting tensions as China threatened to take the country by force.

It was part of what the US military has called “routine activity,” but the Chinese government believes its rival is trying to escalate tensions further.

According to South China Morning PostThe US Navy said the Arleigh Burke Milius-class guided missile destroyer carried out a “routine Taiwan Strait transit” in international waters on Tuesday.

The Navy statement added, “The ship’s transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the United States’ commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific. The US military flies, sails and operates wherever international law permits. “

London: Over the years we have all heard stories of rough crossings across the Irish Sea as people went home for Christmas, but these stories are more often about the behavior of the sea than anything else. Personally, I think there can be few more hectic trips than the one made by my late aunt: Maureen Curtis Black 80 years ago in 1940.

Maureen, who had left Ireland in the 1930s to teach in England because she had been unable to secure a post in her native country, was determined to return home to Cork and her family for Christmas. She knew the trip would be difficult. England was at war and the people were used to living and dealing with the bombardments and the damage they caused.

His train journey through England to Liverpool took much longer than usual because they had to keep changing trains. Maureen must have heaved a sigh of relief once on board the Innisfallen, the ship that would take her on the latter part of her voyage across the Irish Sea. Little did she know she was traveling the very night the ship hit a mine just a few miles from the port of Liverpool and nearly sank. Needless to say, Maureen did not return home and had to stay in England for Christmas that year.

Like many Irish and Irish living and working in wartime England, Maureen never spoke of her ordeal. Our family only learned of what they had experienced when a handwritten account of this experience was found in their papers after her death.

Below is an edited version of his lyrics:

Suddenly a girl from London shouted “we have been bombed” when no plane was in sight. We had hit a mine. We stood on the deck in ice water. My friend fell with a broken leg. We tried to reach her for help, but the sailors yelled at us and tried to rush us off the deck. I refused and insisted on keeping my purse which was floating in the streams further away.

Waves were breaking over the ship. I couldn’t walk properly and realized that the heels had blown off my shoes and the bottom of my legs. There has been a pandemonium. Half-dressed people came out of their cabins, many without shoes, as they lay down.

The mast had struck the captain who was on deck and knocked him unconscious. The first officer and two sailors who had come forward to drop anchor were killed when the bow of the ship was washed away. The sailors frantically started lowering the lifeboats and helped us in. We managed to get away from the sinking ship and the sailors rowed us ashore.

We were a sad sight grouped together on the quay. Drenched and shivering with cold, many in shirts and dresses and without shoes. We wanted to get away from the wharf. We were terrified that there would be a second wave of bombing. But the wharf agents refused to let us go because we had gone through emigration and were technically on Irish soil.

We therefore stayed in the open air, very wet, all icy. After an hour the emigration officer arrived. He had barely finished speaking when the sirens sounded again. We were thrown into air raid shelters and the bombing resumed. From shelters we could see across the river with flames 20 or 30 feet high and buildings collapsing.

We stayed there until about 3 a.m. when the shelling stopped and the planes took off. We spent the rest of the night on another ship moored on the quay. In the morning some senior B&I officials told us that we could get train tickets to anywhere in England, but they wouldn’t even give sixpence in cash to anyone. I was so glad I insisted on getting my purse.
