I-Boat Captain Hardcover – November 5, 1976
Top Customer Reviews
Its already pretty apparent the tactical Japanese naval superiority in almost all key areas, fighters, dive-bombing, air torpedos, destroyer torpedos,the torpedos themselves, and night surface-ship gunnery.
What if Pearl Harbor had never been attacked at all, but the Japanese had gone south then waited for the 7th Fleet in its entirety to come after them in mid or SW Pacific, sometime in 1942.
Who sees much chance that this show-down battle that many Japanese admirals dreamed of, could possibly not have been won by the Japanese?
America might have been looking at another Tsushima, except worse, with most or all of the US Pacific Fleet wiped out thousands of miles from America, a death toll 10 times that of Pearl Harbor or more, and by an enemy who had never- in this scenario- directly attacked America?
How would any US president let alone one like Roosevelt already skating on thin ice for his apparent resolve to gradually involve isolationist America in war with the Axis, be able to convince the Congress and public to rebuild , re-man , rally and go out across the ocean to fight the unbeaten Japanese again?
and if so, then what of us, in Australia.
