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 home

during

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.

8 December 1941

 

USA        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.

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.
