Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From the Chapter entitled: JAPAN’S BLUEPRINT A Surprise Attack? Fearing that the U.S. Pacific Fleet would become a formidable obstacle to the Japanese conquest of Southeast Asia, Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, the Commander in Chief of the Japanese Combined Fleet, visualized a bold attack on the Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor. Although nationalistic and militaristic pride was driving Japan toward war with the United States, some Japanese military leaders were concerned about the long-range implications of a lengthy war with an industrial giant. “We should do our very best ... to decide the fate of the war on the very first day.” --Isoruku Yamamoto Yamamoto’s Apprehension Of all the Japanese leaders, it was Admiral Yamamoto who resisted the idea of war with America. He felt Japan had no hope of victory against the United States. Educated at Harvard University and later serving as naval attaché in Washington in the 1920’s, Yamamoto knew firsthand the industrial might of the United States. He knew America was superior to Japan in technology, science and natural resources. He worried about relations with Germany and mistrusted Japan’s involvement in the Tripartite Pact, joining Italy, Germany and Japan. Even Admiral Yamamoto expressed doubt and apprehension over Japan’s headlong push toward conflict. “I shall run wild considerably for the first six months or a year, but I have utterly no confidence for the second and third year.” --Isoruku Yamamoto Yamamoto was also a fierce loyalist, always putting his country first. His idea of delivering a fatal attack on Pearl Harbor utilizing most of Japan’s military fleet of aircraft carriers thousands of miles away from home was indeed ambitious. The planning was meticulous and the need for secrecy and surprise was paramount!
