"Yesterday, December 7th, 1941
a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan."


Tora! Tora! Tora!


Admiral Yamamoto, never wanted this but was overruled by Tojo and the army hawks

Thoughts?

Re: "Yesterday, December 7th, 1941
The rape of Nanking is one of the worst episodes in WW2 (Ok it was just before) .... unbelievable stories of teh cruelty inflicted on the Chinese population by the Imperial Jap army... 2 Atomic bombs was too good for those sadists

Re: "Yesterday, December 7th, 1941
Still never fails to freak me out that this war wiped out 3% of he worlds population and almost 14% of the USSR!!!

Mental and the amount of Chinese civilians killed shows what a horrible set of cunts the Japs were as well.

Re: "Yesterday, December 7th, 1941
Massive mistake not getting us out of the war before turning towards the East. Agreed.

Re: "Yesterday, December 7th, 1941
Eddie... you can also add 1940... turning his bombers onto the Cities rather than the airfields (which had been decimated) allowing the RAF to get back up to numbers.... as Dowding said... "Turning on London could be the Germans biggest blunder".

Zitzadelle/Kursk 1943 as well. Waited too long for the Panthers to arrive before launching the offensive. Never recovered from that. Was game over from then on.

Probably add to that the decision to split his army between those to attack Stalingrad and make a drive for the Caucases for the oil.

In fact if he had concetrated his forces early on before Stalingrad was re-inforced the 4th Panzer under Papa Hoth would have taken it fairly easily.

As for Germany declaring war on the US. It was only a matter of time befoer the US would have declared war on Germany. So I don't think it was that important.

Up there with the top three mistakes Hitler made:

1) Invading Russia
2) Declaring war on the USA
3) Stopping the tanks outsdie Dunkirk

They had 3 chances to wipe out the US Carrier Fleet... one at Pearl Harbor (out on patrol) and the other at Coral Sea and finally at Midway... once the Japs lost their flat tops it was game over Baby... GAME OVER...

Re: "Yesterday, December 7th, 1941
Yep, dumb ASS.

Still, we might not have had help fending off the Russians if they hadnt got involved, so inadvertently they may have saved the West by forcing the yanks to get into the game in the first place.
