IJNS I-29

Shown here is the Japanese submarine I-29 preparing to meet a string of rubber boats from the german U-180 at a rendezvous off Madagascar in April 1943. The German boats' chief passenger was Subhas Chandra Bose, a violent anti-British Indian nationalist who was coming out of exile in Germany. Bose planned to raise an army among Indian prisoners of war in Japan, and attack British colonial forces in Burma and elsewhere. But the scheme failed dismally, and Bose himself died in a plane crash in 1945.
