Dr Henry Longman:
The last of six programmes in which A. J. P. Taylor talks about the great leaders of the Second World War.
War Lords Anonymous
Japan, uniquely among the great powers of the Second World War, had no War Lord. Even Emperor Hirohito, in theory absolute, always accepted the unanimous recommendations of his Imperial Council. ' It's an extraordinary story,' says A. J. p. TAYLOR. It wasn't that the Generals ruled, it wasn't that the Admirals ruled, or the Ministers -it was the unknown, anonymous assassin who really determined policy.'
A. J. P. Taylor traces the history of Japan in this century. He tells how Japan tried to create its own Empire in Asia. And he explains why the Japanese decided to attack the American Fleet in Pearl Harbour and go to war. ' I fear,' said Admiral Yamamoto, ' that we have only awakened a sleeping giant and his reaction will be terrible.'
