eBook (ePub): $10.00
When Commodore Matthew Perry came to Japan requesting trade opportunities, the startled Japanese were awakened out of centuries of slumber, and new leaders began to think of dominating all of Asia... More > --- and perhaps even the four corners of the world. Their goal: to be ichiban (number one). Expansion of the Empire was necessary, of course, because the Home Islands could not provide the necessary raw materials needed to accomplish such ambitious goals. One of the greatest shortages was oil, and when the U.S. placed an oil embargo on Japan in the summer of 1941, Japanese militarists were willing to go to war with the U.S., and consequently planned a six-month-long campaign of surprise attacks and naval night battles. The Japanese already had significant strongholds in Asia, and their military forces were ready, but there was one thing they hadn't planned on: the ability of America to respond so quickly.< Less

Turning the Tide: The Naval Air Battles of the Coral Sea and Midway By Arne Markland
eBook (ePub): $10.00
America was still reeling from Japan's surprise attack on Pearl Harbor as the Japanese fleet was running amok in and around the Java Sea. Within months, Japan had occupied most of Southeast Asia.... More > Flushed with "victory disease," the Imperial Japanese Army decided to go after Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea, and asked the Japanese Navy for help in occupying the port. The IJA also wanted the IJN to seize control of the nearby Coral sea, and as a follow-up, to clear the waters around Guadalcanal of Allied ships. The consequent Battle of Coral Sea resulted in a strategic victory for the U.S. in that it thwarted the Japanese plan to occupy Port Moresby, and the failure of Japan's massive fleet to occupy Midway a few months later meant Japan would have to shrink her outer defense perimeter.
