 UQ graduate uncovers new facts about Pearl Harbor - UQ News Online - The University of Queensland
He has argued that prior to the Japanese attack on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor, Japan's ambassador to the US, Admiral Nomura Kichisaburo offered his colleagues in Tokyo an “accurate, penetrating, forceful and even courageous assessment of the likely outcome of Japan's aggressive path”.
Unlike previous historical studies Dr Mauch's thesis argued Nomura's position mattered enormously because his interpretation of events differed markedly from most of his colleagues in Tokyo.
American acquiescence in Japan's aspirations could only be guaranteed by the use or threat of force, yet the force Japan could muster was merely a fraction of that which the US possessed,” he said.
