There is a footage (no audio), where can be seen the firm gestures of Yamashita demanding what might be understood as unconditional surrender. Gen. Percival´s face looking seriously concerned

Famous WW2 Quote
"You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terrors. Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival."
