Fall of Hong Kong

 

 

The Battle of Hong Kong

(8–25 December 1941),

also known as

the Defence of Hong Kong

and the Fall of Hong Kong,

was one of the first battles

of the Pacific War

in World War II.

 

On the same morning

as the attack on Pearl Harbor,

forces of the Empire of Japan

attacked the British Crown

colony of Hong Kong,

without declaring war

against the British Empire.

 

The Hong Kong garrison

consisted of British,

Indian and Canadian units,

also the Auxiliary Defence Units

and Hong Kong Voluntary Defence Corps.

December 1941-1945

 

The Japanese army

invaded Burma

in December 1941.

 

 

It began only a few days

after the surprise bomb attack

at Pearl Harbor on Hawaii

devastated the US fleet

and signalled

the expansion of the conflict

across the Pacific

and through south-east Asia.

 

Depleted by the need

to fight on fronts

closer to homeduring

the second world war,

few British and Indian

army units

had been left to defend

the colony.

 

They were, however,

later joined by Chinese forces

loyal to Chiang Kai-shek.

 

Rangoon, Burma's capital,

fell to the Japanese

in March 1942.

 

Thailand had entered

into an alliance with Japan

and its troops

supported the invasion.

Declaration of War on Japan

 

 

Players: General Töjö

(Japanese Minister for War

and Prime Minister from 1941-44),

 

Stalin, Churchill, Roosevelt,

Cordell Hull

(US Secretary of State),

 

Admiral Yamamoto,

Matsuoka Yösuke

(Japan's foreign minister).

 

 

For four years,

Japan's designs on China

had caused alarm to the Allies.

 

By 1938

Japan occupied a vast area

of the Chinese coastline.

 

Japan's ambition

was to establish

Japanese primacy in Asia

and incorporate

China into the Empire,

subduing any opposing

Western nation.

 

On 27 September 1940,

Japan signed

the Tripartite Pact

with Germany and Italy,

binding the three countries

to mutual support.

 

Japan now faced

a war with Russia

and Hitler's attack

there in June 1941

came as a disturbing surprise

to the Japanese.

 

A Russo-Japanese

non-aggression pact

was negotiated

by Matsuoka Yösuke,

Japan's foreign minister,

in 1941

- but Stalin would eventually

break the terms

of this agreement.

Boston Globe > Pearl Harbor 70th anniversary        December 7, 2011

 

Some 100 survivors

of the attack on Pearl Harbor

will gather in Hawaii today 70 years

after the day which drew the US

into World War II.

 

The Japanese air and naval strike

on the American military base

claimed nearly 2,400 lives,

destroyed over 160 aircraft

and beached, damaged or destroyed

over 20 ships.

 

President Franklin D.

called it " a date which will live in infamy"

when he addressed the Congress the next day

asking to declare war with Japan.
