Does anyone know under what circumstances RADM Mitsunobu Toyo was killed in June 1944? Was he killed by the Germans or partisans ? Thanks in advance, Harry

Hi, Harry!
The matter of the Mitsunobu Toyo's death is really mysterious...
He was killed by partisans (exactly, by the "XI Zona Patrioti" unit that was in command of Manrico "Pippo" Ducceschi).
He was in Italy for a diplomatic mission on behalf of the Japanese government. However, I enclose a very interesting link:

Ciao, :)
