Title: Imperial Japanese military plan for striking into the South Pacific in 1946??
Post by: M.A.D on May 09, 2018, 02:09:55 PM
Iíve just finished listening to a presentation on YouTube titled Ė World War II Myths, Misconceptions and Surprises where historians Gerhard Weinberg, William Hitchcock and Mark Stoler discuss popular perceptions of the war and recent research that challenges many of them. They present new insights into the personalities and events of that time.

In this presentation, itís mentioned that the Imperial Japanese military was originally intending to strike into the South Pacific - including invading the Philippines, in 1946, capitalising on the Tydings McDuffie Act (enacted March 24, 1934), where the United States was to give the Philippines their independence in 1944, and have withdrawn militarily from Philippine bases by 1946, and I assume in doing so, not needing to declare war on USA in doing so.
Frankly, Iíve never heard of any Imperial Japanese war plans pertaining to a time frame of 1946!

Does anyone have any info on these Japan's 1946 war plans please?

Is this instead of the real world 1941 attacks?  In other words, similar to the original German plan for war in ~1943?

As I said Greg, Iíve never heard of any Imperial Japanese war plans pertaining to a time frame of 1946, so I would assume so mate!
I've been hitting the web to find more, but sadly to no avail!
