The Height of Japanese Power

Lecture no. 13 from the course: World War II: A Military and Social History

 The Height of Japanese Power

Taught by Professor Thomas Childers | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

In the wake of Pearl Harbor, the Japanese rolled to an unbroken series of triumphs that established their dominance in Southeast Asia and across the South Pacific, including British Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaya, French Indochina, the Netherlands East Indies, and the American Philippines. This lecture examines this high-water mark of Axis power, concluding with the surprising U.S. victory in the Battle of the Coral Sea.
