The Greater East Asian War: How Japan Changed The World

(Published by KK Bestseller in Japanese, 2015)
Chapter 2 – The Trap Laid by the United States

Mr. Kase writes:

Today many Japanese people mistakenly believe that the war with the United States was started by Japan or that it was the fault of Japan’s out-of-control military.
In 1941 neither the Japanese government nor the military had any desire to go to war with the United States. Right up to the final days before the fighting began, they made every effort to try to avoid war.
By contrast, the United States had already decided, well before Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, on a policy of going to war with and neutralizing Japan.

He validates this view from various angles with ample historical source materials in this chapter. Highly convincing material is obtained from Freedom Betrayed (Hoover Institute Press, Stanford, 2011), a colossal testimonial written by Herbert Hoover, the 31st President of the United States.

“I said that the whole Japanese war was madman’s [FDR’s] desire to get into war. He [Douglas MacArthur] agreed and also agreed that the financial sanctions in July 1941 were not only provocative but that Japan was bound to fight even if it were suicide unless they could be removed, as the sanction carried every penalty of war except killing and destruction, and no nation of dignity would take them long.” (p.833-834)
