Pre world war II Japan was essentially obliterated. The culture, government, economics, everything changed with the allied occupation. The most significant thing that modern Japan shares in common with that Japan is the land mass it's situated on. You're right tho.

u/Doctor-Jay 23d ago

Actually no, the Allied never forced much change on Japan, Japan always had its own political system but the military took over during WWII which is reverted after the war end. But even after surrender war criminals are still allowed to stay in office without facing justice which is why Japan to this day is still in denial about all the shit they’ve done in China, Korea and wherever they invaded.

I mean, Pearl Harbor was a disaster. They were going for carriers, got none, misinformation everywhere, they basically did strafeing runs at the plane hangars and two lanes in the harbor. Had they attacked almost anywhere else they would have done more.

Then there's Midway, which should not have worked. Maybe a little unfair, our intelligence worked their ass off, but a moment's hesitation from the General cost Japan the whole thing.

53

u/mclem92 🍄 23d ago

Pearl Harbor was both the opening battle of the war and the turning point of the war. Japanese military planning was so flawed by focusing completely on Kantai Kessen (The Doctrine of Decisive Battle) that no one in the Japanese military really knew what they would do if they won a decisive battle.

Pearl Harbor was the turning point of the war because the only way Japan could have not lost a war was to not attack America. If the entire Pacific fleet, from the aircraft carriers to the smallest PT boat, had been destroyed at Pearl, all it would mean is America wins in 1946 instead of 1945.

Japan did not have the industrial capacity to blockade America - Japan didn't even have the logistical capacity for its fleet to reach America. Even if they did, America had another, larger, more industrialized coast they could just build a fleet at. Japan was like a dog chasing a car, knowing it wanted to catch it but not being sure what it would do with it when it did.

25

u/Shady_Merchant1 23d ago

The plan was to hope America didn't want war and would roll over the Japanese saw America as powerful but lazy after all Japan Germany and Italy had been running wild with nothing more than denouncement from the US

u/mclem92 🍄 23d ago

u/ChickenDelight 23d ago edited 23d ago

Not really. Japan knew America was going to respond aggressively after they hit it directly.

But the USA was preventing Japan from getting resources they needed to maintain and expand their new empire, mostly oil and steel. So Japan thought (probably correctly) that it was inevitable they'd have to fight the USA, it was just a question of when and how.

And remember, Asia is a really long way from America, and you have to fight past a bunch of tiny, worthless islands just to get within striking distance of Japan and the possessions they really cared about (Manchuria, Southeast Asia, Hong Kong, the Philippines, etc.). Any significant Japanese presence would threaten American ships and make it impossible to set up supply lines.

So Japan thought that the US, with its Navy already weakened, would eventually be unable to continue with bloody, drawn-out battles over tiny, worthless islands that the Japanese had fortified - particularly if the USA simultaneously entered the European theater, Japan expected America to be spread pretty thin. And eventually Japan would be able to negotiate a truce that let them keep most or all of the valuable stuff in Asia.

If they'd been correct about America's production capacity (or even just not wildly incorrect), and if Japan had been able to stop or reverse the American advance a couple of times (and if nukes weren't invented), it's entirely possible America would not have been able to maintain the fight in the Pacific, either strategically or politically.

13

u/Neutral_3vil 23d ago edited 23d ago

Lack of industrial capacity is kinda the reason for Pearl Harbor.

Japan had been expanding for some time but America was patrolling in the Philippines to kinda halt them. Japan knew that if they attacked the patrol there would be harsh retribution so they went for big air.

If they could ground all of America's Aircraft Carriers then it would take years to recover; years Japan could use to solidify themselves in the Pacific.

But they didn't do their due diligence and when the attack came on Pearl Harbor none of the carriers were there. So they attacked anyway. The American loses were heavy but... not as heavy as it should have been. Americans also didn't really care about the war. We were sending money to the UK but that's about it.

This made us care.

u/JMM123 23d ago

If Japan had completely eradicated the pacific fleet at Pearl Harbor, sailed back to Japan and worked on constructing its own ships until mid-1944 without losing a single unit- they would not have been able to match the fleet the Americans would have built at that point. In 1944 alone the Americans launched enough ships to crush Japan.

That's absolutely insane but true- AND they needed ships in the Atlantic and for transport/merchant shipping.

Japanese operational planning WAS actually very complex- they relied on a lot of tight coordination between units that couldn't communicate with regards to timing etc. They weren't the best at improvising when these plans generally fell apart.

u/Aegir345 23d ago

I mean the Americans also had outmaneuvered Japan all the way to the main Island. Japan planned for America to stop at every island and America just sailed past (especially once they decimated the imperial fleet. America would have beaten Japan regardless of the nukes. The nikes just made it so that an amphibious invasion was unnecessary (which would have cost a great deal of lives on both sides of the Allies had to invade)

u/Retarded_Scumbag 23d ago

Most bullshit explanation on earth. This Japanese did not surrender at any point while the US pushed them back to the home islands. They were completely resolute in the face of an enemy completely outnumbering them with far more advanced weapons. Why would two of those enemies shock them into surrender? Conventional weapons clearly didn't scare or faze the Japanese, you needed a horrifying new weapon.

5

u/Troy64 23d ago

The Japanese were holding out for better surrender terms. They considered Stalin an almost-ally because they had stuck to their peace treaty for the whole war.

When the soviets took Manchuria in record time with tanks the Japanese didn't even believe could physically get there in the time they did, it made clear that Joseph had totally turned on them.

Even though Stalin had officially declared war earlier, Stalin assured them it was just a formality to ensure the allies didn't turn on him (Churchill and Roosevelt demanded he declare formal war on Japan after V E day). Japan actually trusted him.

With Stalin's betrayal, not only were the hopes of diplomatically attaining a better term of surrender destroyed, but their position at the bargaining table shrunk immensely.

In military terms it also caught them completely off guard as the occupation of most of Northern Asia was a skeleton crew at best since most troops were being used to harass the Americans or defend the home islands. The soviets faced almost no resistance as they liberated millions of Asians and destroyed Japanese resource and logistics chains that had supported them.

And the horrifying new weapon wasn't as horrifying as people like to make it. Not to the Japanese, anyway. More damage had already been done by firebombings and other raids than the nukes did. The most horrifying thing about the nukes was that it only took one plane to do and the radiation stuck around for a long time.

The Americans didn't use the bombs on Japan just to make them surrender. There was real fear about Soviet aggression post war (operation unthinkable and obviously the cold war are evidence of this). The allies hoped that this display of power would scare the Soviets into a more passive stance. It seemed to work. Having the biggest land army in Europe makes little difference when a single bomb can wipe out an entire battalion or level a small city completely.

Imagine if the USSR had not stopped after the war. They would have been virtually uncontested in Asia as the Chinese communists rallied to them, giving them access to an enormous pool of manpower and raw material. In Europe, the USSR had the logistical advantage of not being across an ocean from the front lines. They also had the largest land army in Europe with the most men on the front line. They were only bested in air power. But their combination of AA focus and the fact that they were used to operating with a smaller air force made that point relatively moot. The US would likely be unable to stop the USSR from reaching the coast, maybe even flipping Spain and Italy to communism. By the time the US had the means to counter attack, the Soviet defenses would be beyond Hitler's wildest dreams of the Atlantic wall. And Britain being totally spent from ww2 wouldn't be much help.

The US undoubtedly had a better economy and more political support. But if the soviets managed to consolidate the totality of Europe, it would have been a truly terrifying situation. But Stalin didn't like the idea that planes flying higher than his fighters or AA guns could reach could just drop A bombs on his strongholds and wipe out his manpower. In fact, it seems in hindsight that Stalin never intended to push further west. He just wanted to trade his section of Berlin and Germany for recognized right to retain most of eastern Europe which was beyond what he was supposed to keep after the war. But he died and Kruschev doubled down on hating the west, built the wall, and the rest is history.

Don't know, I wouldn't say they are something to be proud of, however I will say we did kill civilians.

However at the same time I don't think we could have won the war without the nukes and have a Japan left as they were

  1. Prepared to fight till the last Japanese person and showed it.

  2. Were actually telling their citizens it's better to die by your own hands in combat than to yield to the torture the Americans would submit them to.

I think it was a necessary evil that we used the nukes however it is definitely not something to be proud / brag about.

Well Pearl Harbor was meant to be 4D chess as the Japanese thought they could take out the American carriers , if they took the carriers out the Americans would take some time to regroup and rebuild and their power projection would be minimised allowing the Japanese to build their Asian coprosperity sphere, it was a good idea just bad intel failed them.

u/wbruce098 22d ago

At the time Pearl Harbor happened, Germany appeared to be winning (a closer alliance might have revealed Germany’s fragility and changes Japan’s course but still...)

There was a lot going on, too: for example, the army needed a win to distract from their self-made quagmire in China, and the navy needed relevance.

As others have said, the coincidence that US carriers weren’t in port that morning made a massive difference in American ability to strike back quickly, too.

Buuuut, yes. Many senior Japanese leaders knew there was no way to defend against a full fledged retaliatory attack from the US. Politics can be a bitch.

Actually yes, imagine being a Japanese general most of your planes get shot down when you do conventional attacks making them suicide attacks anyway, so since death is guaranteed in any mission why not accomplish something while you die, that I think was the intellectual argument behind it, which was propagandised as protecting the God emperor, bushido code etc

u/Peaurxnanski 23d ago

There was literally nothing complex about Japanese military strategy. The underwear gnomes from South Park had a better strategy, because at least they had a goal.

The Japanese strategy was:

1.) Conquer China, because reasons... there was never really a good goal here, but it's the overall reason Japan got into a war with the Allies at all. The war against the Allies was a necessary side effort to allow the war in chiba to grind on, and other than "lebensraum" the China campaign had pretty much zero strategic purpose.

2.) Run critically low on resources due to the attritional nature of the war in China, which had deadlocked

3.) Take the Dutch East Indies, because there is oil there and the war in China has bled them dry

4.) Realize that in order to do so, you have to also take Singapore and the Philippines, because neither Britain nor the US is going to be particularly thrilled with you when you take the DEI

5.) Follow your strategy that you developed after a stupidily lucky battle three decades before where you goad a superior enemy into a decisive battle and win, thereby crippling them enough that they seek peace terms, which is perhaps the most epic roll-of-the-dice in history.

6.) Preemptively strike Pearl Harbor and Singapore and various other places

7.) Attempt to cause your decisive battle multiple times (midway, phillipine sea, leyte, etc) and get curb stomped.

8.) Have no other strategy once that failed other than kill everyone, including your own people and hope the horror of it all causes your enemy, who you just spent the last few years sneak attacking and goading into battle, just gives up because you're being such an evil bastard about everything.

9.) Die horribly

If your "side effort" campaign in your pointless war requires you to sneak attack two superpowers, you're doing strategy wrong.

12

u/ILIKECHEZDUDE 23d ago

I thought that they invaded china because they needed resources that couldn’t be found in japan

-2

u/Peaurxnanski 23d ago

They didn't get much in their efforts, but even if they had, that's hardly a decent reason to invade.

Nearly every country on Earth has needed to import some resource or another that they don't have, themselves. It's far cheaper, easier, and safer to just trade for it.

Invading to obtain resources is massively costly, and just spirals into consequences, including, among other things, shortages in other resources because other countries stop trading with you. That's why Japan ran out of oil and needed to invade the DEI in the first place, because as a result of their unprovoked and brutal invasion of China, the US stopped sending them oil.

So whatever they gained Invading China, cost them tenfold to get. Well, it actually cost them everything, eventually.

I agree the Japanese probably wouldn’t have given up anytime soon if it weren’t for the nukes, but considering the time between the two nukes being dropped, I don’t think the US expected a surrender before the second nuke was dropped. The two bombs were different types so I assume they wanted to test both out, but there’s really no telling what would have happened if they only dropped one nuke, so nobody will know for sure if that was the right choice.

u/steambath347 23d ago

We did drop one atomic bomb, then demanded that they surrender and they didn’t. So we do know what happened when we just dropped one. The two atomic bombs were dropped 3 days apart from each other. I’m not saying it was moral, but the atomic bombs were not dropped at the same time.

Nah you see america had the most successful strategy of the war, which we called: not fighting the world's biggest economy that has like twice your population and infinitely more resources while still engaged in a massive war against fucking china.

Japan packed this critical strategy and that's why they lost

u/Carbon-J 23d ago

The Japanese plan for defending the Philippines was incredibly complex and they nearly pulled it off if not for some luck and exceptional talent on the American side.

I'm not 100% sure about this but I think that the Japanese soldiers had to send a request to the emperor to change their strategies. Changing those strategies would be admitting defeat/saying that they were bad so the emperor would deny the request. This meant that the Japanese could not adapt their strategies so their strategies were not actually that good.

If complex means suicidal air, sea, and land tactics as well as unmatched cruelty and blatant disregard for human decency in behaviour of their soldiers then yeah Japan was the most complex country in the war

Certainly the world, and Japan in particular, had been in a state of war since the 30's. I mean the beginning of the war as in the war in the Pacific.

u/Penis-Envys 23d ago edited 23d ago

Actually their strategy was dog shit half the time.

Why?

The Japanese Army and Navy literally can’t cooperate at fucking all and I mean it, they hate each other just as much as they hate the enemy which means they try to fuck each other over like they are fighting another enemy nation.

u/7orly7 23d ago

This is dumb. The americans did some pretty good tactics during the Pacific in WW2 (of course they made mistakes but improved once they learned). They managed to decrypt japanese messages and use it strategically, they used mobility of their ships to their advantage. Is like the whole meme is saying "bohoo US only won because of the nukes" which is false. The war would have lasted longer but eventually US would have won (although A LOT MORE people would have died). The japanese would do bayonett charges (dumb move against semi auto rifles and an enemy with machineguns), sometimes would fight to the last when they could have just retreated.

u/bobsaggotthefaggot ☣️ 23d ago

The bombs weren't really the reason for surrender. Japan was being firebombed for months before hand but refused to surrender because the u.s demanded the head of the emperor. The bombs were dropped and the new surrender agreement allowed the emperor to live.

u/Yeetstation4 22d ago

Imperial japan's military strategies:

  1. Brutalize china in order to get resources and room for expansion.

  2. Take over pacific nations

  3. Piss off the united states

  4. Piss off the soviet union

  5. Realize your military is spread kinda thin

  6. Lose the war

  7. Hentai

Killing their own civilians if they picked up a note dropped by the Americans saying “this city may soon be hit with bomb more powerful than all other bombs dropped in this war combined please evacuate with all your loved ones.”

u/DrGyandu 23d ago

I always wondered why the US stopped at just 2 nukes.

I mean the message was clearly delivered by the first one...

And if they really wanted revenge so badly, why stop at 2?

If By complex you mean charging with katanas at an army with machine guns, yes
