15 Biggest Unanswered Questions and Mysteries Of World War II

Even before World War II started, there have been conspiracy theories, and alleged unsolved mysteries surrounding the people and places involved. Over 70 years after the fact, there are still many of those mysteries still yet to be solved.

Of course, to those who don’t gravitate towards conspiracies, and who like to explain things with simple, and sound logic, a lot of these things will seem pretty bogus to you anyway. And they may very well be. But the interesting thing is that it seems like we’ll never know…unless you just think ghosts don’t exist…which is not a stupid position to hold.

But there are other mysteries. Like, who truly betrayed Anne Frank? Who were the 17 British officers listed at Auschwitz? Whatever happened to Hitler’s infamous “Blood Flag”? Was Glenn Miller really killed by the British? Was Rudolph Hess in league with the British Nobility to make peace? And is there really a little boy who is reliving the life of a WWII fighter pilot?

DID THE U-530 SAVE HITLER?

The German U-530 was commanded by Admiral Donitz, and was quite the vessel. It’s not that it achieved any great glory during the war. It’s about what happened after the war that made this U boat special. Rather than surrendering to the British or American forces, U-530 set course to Argentina. When it arrived there, the vessel had no deck gun or weaponry, and the entirety of the crew was without identification. There was no longer any ship log either.

Everything about the contents, and purpose of the U boat was erased. Why? Some believe that high ranking Nazi officials, including Hitler, were dropped off along the Argentine coast before the crew surrendered. In spite of its surrender, others even believe that the vessel and its crew managed to escape to Antarctica. This led rise to the belief that many U boats escaped, with secret weaponry plans…and Hitler.

THE MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE OF FLIGHT 19

“Causes or reasons unknown.” That was the verdict given to the lost Flight 19. The mission was off to a rocky start to begin with. The commander didn’t want to take the lead on this one, and shortly after the first leg of the trip, he seemed to have lost the use of both of his compasses. Despite arguing over which direction to go, the commander led the team of five Avengers further and further off course. They simply vanished (allegedly in the Bermuda Triangle).

Even the rescue plane that left the next day to find them had vanished. All they were trying to do was get back to Florida. About 50 years later, several Avenger planes were found just off the Florida Keys…but the serial numbers didn’t match those of Flight 19. No one has ever recovered a single person or plane, in spite of the 300 ships that went searching days later, or the untold numbers of searchers over the decades. SHOW MORE
