The Japanese did not appreciate the anti-war pacifist sentiment in the US before the Pearl harbor attack. Chances for Japan would have been far better if the Japanese just expanded into much of Asia, perhaps leaving Hong Kong and Singapore alone, without attacking the US. There was a far better chance that the US will remain reluctant to go to war. It was a case of misunderstanding of the ethos of the Americans. There was no hope of the US seeking peace with Japan after the Pearl Harbor attack. Attacking a very large industrialized country was suicidal for Japan.

The whole of south east Asia were western colonies at the time though, and they were all capable of beating japan except for the Netherland or possibly the French. In any case I don’t think the Soviet Union would have put up with them in China and Korea for long either

2018-11-13th: I like this documentary film here. Its title is pretty good also: "The Second World War: The War in the Pacific", instead of all others who follow the wrong saying of "World War II". World War Two? It is not the right form of the English language at all.

A lot of incorrect information in this video. The Tokyo Express ran to Guadalcanal during 1942 and the Slot was between the various islands of the Solomons headed to Guadalcanal. Anyone that thinks the US was decrypting 85% of the Japanese traffic is smoking something. And arguably the Battle for Guadalcanal was the most important battle in the Pacific, although I will not argue too much with someone arguing the point for the Battle of Midway. After Guadalcanal a lot of the top brass in Japan understood that they were going to lose the war, that was not true after the Battle of Midway. Guadalcanal chewed up the Japanese Naval Air power and a massive number of Japanese ground troops. The Japanese also learned that the US Marine Corp was a force they did not understand, a force that could fight them on their own terms and would kill them with greater efficiency than they could kill the Marines. After Guadalcanal, there were no Japanese prisoners taken because the Marines learned how ruthless the Japanese were. Once it was understood that Japanese soldiers thought it was OK to try and surrender and then to kill Marines with hidden hand grenades, the Japanese learned what fighting to the death meant. The US Marines were simply the best soldiers fighting during WW 2, if they had fought in Europe I think the German SS would have learned how to die a lot quicker and would have thought more about the Malmedy massacre when they were murdering US troops during the Battle of the Buldge.

Agreed; the documentary is packed with 'stuff'. Along with Frank's "Guadalcanal" I'd suggest Parshall's and Tully's "Shattered Sword" for the definitive look at Midway.
Will Cline (1 month ago)
+HARAMBE Jr All good points. Another interesting fact is that the Navy casualties were higher than the Marines at Guadalcanal with all the Naval battles for a huge 5,000 Navy killed vs 1,600 Marines. There were a lot of Naval battles associated with Guadalcanal. You sink a Navy Cruiser and that may kill 800 to 1500 men at one time and there were lots of ships sunk in Iron Bottom Sound.

Thanks for the tip about the series but I may have seen it. My suggestion is a book, Richard Frank's: Guadalcanal: The Definitive Account of the Landmark Battle. By far the best book on Guadalcanal.
HARAMBE Jr (2 months ago)
Will Cline True the Marines were a very good fighting force During WW2, They were so Good The Japanese actually thought that the USMC (US MARINE CORP) Recruited men from insane asylums and Prison inmates. And also on Guadalcanal US Marines were very Undersupplied of food and water and were Actually using WORLD WAR ONE WEAPONS and they still caused heavy casualties to the Japanese Soldiers then the US Army came So Marines would often steal food from the Army. They were one of the best fighting forces in WW2 and WW1. Edit:Also The Japanese Tactics we’re out of date they were sent by there generals wave after wave a good example is the Battle of Tenaru on Guadalcanal Japanese Generals sent men after men to get slaughtered by the Marines on the other side of The river Tenaru . I’m not sure about this fact but a Veteran said that 20,000 Japanese died and only 26 Marines Died. A good series that covers Guadalcanal,Cape Gloucester,Peleliu and Okinawa is called The Pacific you should watch it it is excellent Semper Fi.

Much of this footage was new to me. The famous photograph of the flag raising on Iwo Jima, was in fact staged for the photo. When I see this photo, I feel patriotic and proud and I hear The Battle Hymn of the Republic, The Star Spangled Banner, and the Marseillaise, God Save the King, all patriotic battle songs, and see a parade of those who sacrificed their all in the name of freedom. An earlier photo had been made. It shows some tired Marines, one holding a rifle at the ready, raising the US Flag, tied to a piece of pipe. They don't show this one much, and I'm grateful. It makes me cry.

Every bit of footage isn't necessarily from the same battle that the narrator is talking about, that's an F6F Hellcat, that aircraft wasn't operational until the next year, that bit of film is probably from much later in the war like from the Battle of Okinawa which would explain that high of a count of downed planes.

Mark Kent (1 month ago)
@jay see: The Japanese treated their own troops dreadfully, as badly, indeed worse in some respects, than Hitler with his own. They were not properly fed, many resorted to cannibalism, they were not provided with medical supplies or equipment they needed. They were also told, in excruciating detail, how appallingingly the westerners would treat any prisoners, or indeed captured civilians, from torture to eating babies. These were ordinary people, not well educated, so they believe it, rather like Daily Mail readers believing the crap about Brexit being a good idea. It really wasn't their fault, they were appallingly led, woefully let down by their own side, and truly terrified of the enemy and what would happen if captured. Their own behaviour was built on that. Obviously, though, all American troops and engineering are globally superior in every way, in case any of the usual trolls are about.
That was the past you idiot. The past isn’t the same as present!

jee whiz the comment section in this video is so shit that i would think it fell out of my pants leg and i left it at the corner of an isle in my local Walmart, knowing that eventually someone will inevitably find it and have to dispose of it. while im hoping the person who does find it is kind hearted enough to be able to dispose of it in a sensible and normal matter. however i make the grave mistake of not considering the existence of surveillance cameras that watch our every move in the in the store to catch shop lifters but also manage to pay witness to me slipping a bomb greater than the one which landed on Hiroshima onto the floor of the store. then the employees who are watching the camera footage video my incredibly embarrassing moment with their smartphones with their contagious laughter in the background of the video to make millions of views on YouTube. once more leaving the victim of this mess, I, the man who only needed to turd but could not wait for the public toilet, having to leave my home town where i was born raised out of the harassment i gets from people i come by on the street. the moral of this is to be aware that who you are harassing is also human too, they laugh, they cry, and they leave shits on the ground, but isn't that what makes a human a human?

Why does a comment about narrating have to end up in insults being thrown back and forth between British and americans? Thank God they could work together back then! A British person narrating is done in this case because if a yank did it people would be thinking typical USA praising themselves! It's gives impartiality , from the americans and the Japanese who took part in the bsttle . Many can't speak German or French or Chinese or Japanese so because most Americans only speak English it makes sense for the documentary to be narrated in English by a Bri t!

Sorry Boom Bo, but in 1945 the British Asian Fleet included British aircraft carriers. These ships operated with US forces around Okinawa and they were hit by Kamakazi several times, but the British built their carriers with armored flight decks while we still did NOT. Their flight decks did not suffer the damage our Essex class carriers did.

Sounds like Pearl Harbor was really bungled by the Japanese. Missed the carriers, saved most of the crews and shore facilities. Only fully destroyed two obsolete battleships. Surprised they didn't have better planning and intelligence about the carriers.
lassisvulgaris (17 days ago)
At that time, battleships were the core of the navies. All other ships were to support the BBs. Only the British had launched a carrier- attack, involving only planes. That was the attack on Taranto on the night between 11th and 12th of November 1940, and that is where the Japanese got their idea. It has also been claimed that USA knew of the attack, but wanted Japan to strike first.

When the Midway battle was fought, no one knew it was a turning point yet because the Japanese navy was still quite strong even after losing the 4 carriers. They still outnumbered the US Pacific Fleet in carriers and other capital ships. It wasn't until spring of 1943 when newer US carriers went into action.
Mark Kent (6 months ago)
7th December, 1941, Pearl Harbour attack might be significant. A naval disaster for the US. Royal Navy was sent to help, HMS Victorious to support Pacific war, defending US west coast, whilst other vessels were defending the US Eastern coast. So it's more than fair to say that 1941 didn't go well for the US in the pacific theatre in WW2.

21:31 "The decks of the Japanese carriers were crammed with more than 100 aircraft" Wrong, new research has debunked this. The Japanese attack planes were still in the hanger decks. Actually, this amplified the lethality of the dive bombing attack, since the armor-piercing bombs exploded in the confined hangers crammed with aircraft, av gas and ammo. Read "Shattered Sword" for the fascinating true story of the Battle of Midway.
Will Cline (1 month ago)
I agree, the "Shattered Sword" is an excellent book! It also points out that all of those "ineffective" attacks by the planes from the island of Midway as well as the torpedo bombers caused massive problems with the rearming efforts of the Japanese planes. When the carriers were doing 30 knots and maneuvering wildly to avoid the attacks it made rearming planes close to impossible due to the massive lists created by high speed and sharp maneuvering. Imagine trying to manhandle 2 tons of torpedos while the ship has a huge list as well as fighting the centrifugal forces related to the sharp turns. Those attacks significantly delayed all of the Japanese efforts to convert the armament of planes from contact high explosive bombs for bombing Midway to armor-piercing bombs and torpedos to attack the US carriers. And of course, the US torpedo bombers drew the Japanese CAP fighters down from altitude to attack the torpedo planes putting them out of position to defend against the US dive bombers. Those US pilots involved in the earliest attacks were, in fact, true heroes that contributed significantly to the ultimate US victory. It always pains me to read them described as ineffective when in fact they made a huge contribution to the overall success of the US at the Battle of Midway!

Carpet bombing Japan for a few months would have killed more. Japan should be thankful for the invention of the A-bomb for its dramatic effect; otherwise, a few tens of thousands of deaths a day would have had less visual and emotional impact.

+Daniella Stuart Basic grammar, 'Even if it had been', not 'was'. Now go and look up what 'if' means, re-read what I said, and try again. And even Speer indicated that Germany could have had the bomb by 1947, Heisenberg (of uncertainty principle fame) said they understood the physics in 1942. They were not 'nowhere near'. I'm beginning to think your're either not very bright, or just trolling me. Ohhh - are you a soaring tractor sock? That would make sense.
Daniella Stuart (1 month ago)
+Mark Kent Germany was no were near developing the bomb by 1943 not even by 1945 even if the Telemark action was unsuccessful, they could not develop the bomb there could try this in 1941 both Germany &Japan know they could never win the war. there industrial power was to small and it could not compete with the allies try dealing with what happen and not what might of happen The Japanese program to develop nuclear weapons was conducted during World War II. Like the German nuclear weapons program, it suffered from an array of problems, and was ultimately unable to progress beyond the laboratory stage before the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the Japanese surrender in August 1945.
Mark Kent (1 month ago)
+Daniella Stuart Err, completely. Even when prodded. Okay, try this: let's say that the Telemark action was unsuccessful, Germany had the atomic bomb by 1943, conquered all of Europe and the USSR with 3 or 4 devices, and then passed some to Japan. If is impossible to prove. Really good fiction changes, maybe one thing, but leaves all else the same and explores the consequences. Try it, you might develop an imagination! - just for the record, as you seem deeply uninformed on this subject, Speer said that Germany could have had a bomb by 1947. And he was not a scientist. So this is perfectly reasonable to consider. Anyone who thinks that German or Japanese engineering was in any way inferior is wrong, it was not.

Franz1987 uncle Joe and the Soviet Union relied heavily on Lend Lease and supplies from the United States to stay in the fight. Stalin initially signed a non-aggression pact with Nazi Germany and partitioned Poland with Germany. Millions of Russians died because of Stalin's incompetence and megalomania. The DOW BY THE Soviet Union was icing on the cake. It wasn't the reason the Japanese surrendered. The USA had been kicking the shop it out of the Japanese for 3 years and destroyed the Japanese navy. The two atomic bombs were the combination knock out punches after a three year thrashing.

Had them stand out in the bitter freezing winter with limbs extended until frozen, then they simply SNAPPED THEM OFF! WHY? WHY? WHY! Bamboo splinters forced under prisoners finger nails.

Although this is heavily edited and far short of detail of the sacrifice Americans the horrible losses of life on our young people who average age was just 19. Not bad though to teach our young boys and girls about what my dear old uncle's went through.

'the sacrifice Americans' Look it up. Whilst every death is deeply sad, the impact on the US was relatively small, at 0.32% of the population. For the UK (and colonies), 0.94%, or three times great. Compare with Poland, at 17%, or 51 times more people killed than the US suffered, or Russia at 13%. It's very sad indeed, but the Eastern Europeans had it far the worst.
