Updated on August 1, 2017

Who Was Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose?

When Hitler refused to help more to Subhash Chandra Bose for his struggle against British rule, the latter decided to go to Japan for his military activities. Hitler sent him to Japan through a submarine. Bose's submarine journey was dangerous, but finally he was successful to reach Japan.

Subhash Chandra Bose, popularly known as Netaji Subhash Chadra Bose was one of the greatest leaders of Indian Freedom Movement. He was a colleague of Gandhi, who was fighting against British in non Violent way. But when 2nd world war broke out, Subhash Chadra Bose thought that it was the best opportunity for India to get freedom by armed revolution. His plan was to co-operate with Germany and Japan and attack British India. He was sure that Indian soldiers in British army will rebel against the British Government as soon as his army will attack India.

British Government house arrested him, but he escaped and went to Afghanistan, and then to Germany and met Hitler. There he spoke with Hitler about his plans. Hitler assured him to help, and the first step was to give radio speeches for Indian soldiers in British army as well as common Indians who were in mood of getting freedom.

But when Hitler was unable to help more, Subhash Chandra Bose planed to go to Japan, and attack British India with Japan's help. Hitler arranged a submarine for Bose. It was a U-180 German submarine. Werner Musenberg was the Captain of the Submarine. Abid Hassan, a personal assistant and a doctor of Subhash Chandra Bose was his fellow traveler in this journey.

On 9th February 1943, the submarine sailed from Keil, to travel towards Indian ocean. When it detoured south Africa and turned to east, a British tanker Corbis confronted. U-180 sank the British Tanker. Three days later, a Japanese submarine I-29 met with U-180 near Madagascar. Subhash Chandra Bose and Abid Hassan boarded on Japanese submarine which successfully and safely reached to Japan.

Later Subhash Chandra Bose attacked British India from Eastern front with Indian National Army, which was formed by Ras Bihari Basu and expanded by Subhash Chandra Bose.
