Plot Synopsis

LOST GOLD OF WORLD WAR II is a one-hour docuseries that follows a team of Americans attempting to solve one of the great mysteries of World War II. In 1945, as Allied forces closed in, Japanese troops commanded by the notorious Japanese General Yamashita allegedly buried a fortune in treasure in the Philippines. It's believed the treasure included gold, jewels, and priceless artifacts stolen from many nations. Now, a team of Americans follows the lead of an eyewitness who says he saw Yamashita's forces bury countless boxes in tunnels, sealed with explosives, and riddled with booby-traps. The team must decipher a bizarre code believed to be left by a secret society, as a means to avoid the traps and recover the treasure. With the help of an eyewitness, they explore the mountain. Digging continues at Breach-6, but when the team unearths a possible water trap, excavation is put on hold. To find another way into the mountain, the team conducts a LiDAR scan that reveals a cave, perhaps used by Japanese soldiers during the war. Then, after discovering a bomb marker, the team brings in an explosives expert to search a cave that may have been a headquarters of General Yamashita during the war. Inside, they uncover a potential booby trap, along with their first hint of treasure.
