  • One very important thing on the attack on pearl harbor. They achieved their goals. They didn't want the carriers nor care they were aiming for our BB's our flag ships the pride of a nation and so on, at that point carriers were still very new and japan viewed battleships in higher regard as targets. Everyone seems to view this situation through the scope of modern thinking where a carrier is superior. The world didnt fully know this yet and thankfully for us had their targets been our carriers there is a chance they would have waited to be sure but thats just speculation on my part now.

  • For geo-political reason (i.e. embarrassment over 'New York Agreement') since 1962 New Guinea and US veteran service there have been largely edited out US papers and histories; so it is not a surprise that your presentation does similarly. I think you may find that Japan's invasion of New Guinea was some six months after the Dutch East Indies, that Japan was unable to win local support such as Sukarno provided in the East Indies, Japan lost some 200,000 troops while trying to subdue and hold New Guinea, that once MacArthur gagued local loyalty and support he relocated his HQ to Hollandia and West New Guinea quickly building over twenty air bases and marshalling grounds, although he successfully pushed back up into the Philippines and the A-bomb missions were successful there was no guarantee of either and the backup plan was for a big-push through Sukarno's East Indies and up the Asian coast towards Japan.

  • You didn’t even include Australia we did so much more then the Dutch but you did not include us we only took 5 thousand casualties in Papua while we killed 350 thousand Japanese soldiers and all Australia had at the time was a Calvary division and civilian militia britain took our troops to fight in Africa even though Curtin wanted our troops back and the American help we got in Papua was not very good the American soldiers died like flies because they weren’t hardy and tough enough to survive in Papua nearly all the American marines died.

    • @Michael Winegar Americans were mostly in Australia during the war and the ones that did go to Papua just died plus the only Australians that the military could get were old people and young people to fight in papua because our whole trained army was in Africa and Britain would not let us leave and the Americans were given air support in all their battles plus the disease deaths of the Japanese are just claims I read the same wiki article you did it is not proven that most deaths were from disease.

      PatriotPatriot11 gün önce
    • *we only took 5 thousand casualties* According to the Australian War Memorial 7,000 Australians were killed in the New Guinea campaign. *while we killed 350 thousand Japanese soldiers* 350,000 was the total number of Japanese military involved. The Australian War Memorial puts the number of Japanese deaths at 127,600, mostly due to disease and starvation. *the American soldiers died like flies because they weren’t hardy and tough enough to survive in Papua* Only 4,684 US deaths, apparently tougher and hardier than the Australians.

  • One of the things that also helped hasten the surrender was all the good coasts and ports of mainland Japan were heavily mined with naval mines, which completely cut off a lot of shipping, and isolated the home islands from the rest of the Empire, which on top of air raids completely destroyed the mainland. I believe like 60% of the Japanese fleet, if it wasn't sunk by a mine, was usually stuck in port and unable to leave.

  • Really glossed over the Pacific theater huh. I watch Your European one and it had much more detail. The Pacific was alot longer and a ton more battles and information. The Pacific theater often gets overlooked because Nazi cool. But the Japanese were much more fierce fighters. And like you briefly touched on some of the toughest battles the Allies fought were in the Jungles of the Pacific.

  • It is very very very wrong to say that Okinawa had anything to do with the American strategic bombing of Japan. The firebombing of Tokyo happened on the night of March 9/10... the Okinawa invasion was three weeks away at that point. In reality, Franklin Delano Roosevelt had committed the USA to the firebombing of Japan in the war to come when he declared in 1940 that the USA should have a 50,000 plane air force. Billy Mitchell written that firebombing was the way to attack Japan back in 1925...the US had developed air dropped incendiaries in time for Jimmy Doolittle's bombers to drop them on Japan in April of 1942.
