Summary

The story of Japanese involvement in WWII is one that includes a number of amazing events between 1939 and 1945. The Japanese went from fighting against the Chinese to attempting to practically take on the entire world at the same time. 

You will learn about:

  • The attack on Pearl Harbor
  • The war in the Pacific begins
  • The completion of the war plan
  • Attacking Australia and further expansion
  • Battle of the Coral Sea
  • The battle for the Solomon Islands
  • The bomb
  • The Japanese surrender
  • And much more!

This is a story of rapid expansion, an attempt at consolidation, and ultimately, retreat and massacre. It is a story of honor, of Allied unity, and eventual surrender. The role of Japan in the war in the Pacific is a part of WWII that cannot be forgotten.

Absolutely appalling

Terribly written and absurdly simplistic, lacking any detail whist remaining extremely dry. Genuinely difficult to listen to.

disappointing

I downloaded this without researching what others in the description said. my fault. too short to be anything except for a 10th graders introduction to world war II in Japan. of the sequences were wrong. for example, the author stated that the Japanese Navy had suffered no significant losses prior to the Battle of savo Island. he completely overlooks the Battle of Midway where the Japanese lost for carriers.
speaking of Midway, the author makes it seem like that the American carriers that fought there were actually on their way to the Aleutian Islands, and had fallen for the Japanese trap. that is not the case at all. the carriers were placed several hundred miles Northeast of Midway so that they could ambush the four Japanese carriers. the Americans knew that Midway was going to be bombed and attacked because it had figured out the Japanese naval code, jn-25.
