prime minister and president

If the supreme leadership gets into trouble, in the case of the United States, a president will emerge as the "commander-in-chief."

However, in Japan, where "Emperor Showa was the supreme commander", even Prime Minister Tojo cannot touch the navy.

The Navy, such as I say,
don't listen at all

Rather, the opinion itself
Not asked.

And the supreme commander = Emperor Showa who is the commander-in-chief.

They "didn't know" about these things.

I won a little too much,
"Win and fasten the tail of your helmet"!

Despite winning
Generals are a little tired...

We have to do more training for young people!

Contrary to Commander Yamaguchi's wishes, history progresses.

U.S. Navy tries to counterattack

The attack on Pearl Harbor ended in a “sneak attack” rather than a surprise attack.

Speech by President Roosevelt after the surprise attack (Historical People August 2021 ABC Arc)

The United States has taken full advantage of this fact to

Japan is a coward!

and advertise around the world.

In hindsight, the attack on Pearl Harbor is said to have been better off without a surprise attack.

The U.S. military made great use of "deception", but the U.S. Navy suffered great damage from the Japanese Navy, which was centered on aircraft carriers.

If you don't get revenge, you won't get rid of the bugs in your stomach.

Somehow, counterattack Japan!

However, in the Pacific Ocean at that time, the Japanese Navy had the power to overwhelm the US Navy.

However, Japan's navy
Very powerful...

The aim is Tokyo

Can we air raid Tokyo?

Admiral Nimitz, Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet.

Tokyo where the Emperor is...

If Tokyo is air-raided,
Let's blow a bubble in Japan!

As expected, it is difficult.

Even approaching Japan's coastal waters
Extremely difficult.

It was a matter of course.

The capital of any country is the most important and well-defended.

Moreover, for the Japanese military and Japanese people, Tokyo, where the Emperor resides, is a special city.

Is difficult···

Think about it!


The attack on Pearl Harbor...

Battleships, to some extent
I was able to fix it.

But how many U.S. military personnel
I think he died in that attack!

From the perspective of the U.S. military, it was ``I can't get over it if I don't give back.''
