I would guess that they were quite satisfied with it. The Emperor was GOD. Wouldn't a Christian be happy if Christ himself was the head of his country?

Answer It depended upon whether you are talking about the ETO (European Theater of Operations) or the Pacific. In the Pacific, we have all heard about the atrocitie…s committed by the Japanese. The Japanese were fanatical. The Banzai charge is well documented in history. The Japanese also adhered to the code of Bushido, the warrior way. In this code, there was no mention of surrender. The Japanese did not believe in surrender. They would win or die. Anyone who did surrender was pathetic and not worthy of life. Because of this, the fighting in the Pacific was very brutal, no holds barred, no quarter asked or given. It was kill or be killed, with all the weapons at the hands of the Allies used, but still hand to hand was common. As for ETO, again it depended upon whether it was Germany against the Allies or Germany against the Soviets. Against the Allies, the Germans fought hard and stubbornly. They did not give ground until late in 44. The Germans would fight you tooth and nail. After D-Day, they turned the brocage of Normandy into a virtual death trap. In Arnhem, the SS were civil. But on the Eastern front, it was very much like the Pacific in that it was kill or be killed. Both sides engaged in whole sale slaughter whenever possible. Humanity took a back seat to barbarity. The fighting was often up close and personal and very lethal.
The U.S. entered WWII and Japan because the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Pearl Harbor was a naval base. This attack killed hundreds of U.S. soldiers. After this attack Amer…ica joined the war. The Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor because the United States boycotted them. There was some concern regarding whether the Japanese in this country would be loyal to the Emperor of Japan or to the United States. There were many reasons, the official reason given was because Japanese Americans living on the west coast were direct threats to National security.
Some US clothing styles in World War II Most men and women wore hats when outside the home. Many women wore stylish hats. Young boys 12 and younger wore knickers,… pants just below the knee, elasticized to stay at knee, (hopefully), with long socks to knee, often patterned or argyle types. Girls often wore jumpers, sleeves dresses with blouses under them. Winter clothing was heavy; wool, heavy cottons,- no polyester invented yet. Men sometimes wore double breasted suit coats and overcoats -Wide ties with wild prints and colors. Women wore "housedresses" at home; very few women wore slacks or trousers, except those who were working in factories for production of war materials. Women wore "Peter Pan collars" on blouses- rounded collars all way round the neck. Many women wore fur coats, fur collars on winter coats or fur stoles; often fox. Men and women wore one piece bathing/swim suits. Because of WW II, many fashions imitated military styles. Winter coats often imitated Sailors "Pea Jackets"- heavy blue, double breasted hip length jackets for winter; belted overcoats/trench coats like Army officers wear (still seen today in raincoats, "trenchcoats" Women skirts were just below the knee. Nylon stockings were scarce; they wore imitation seamed nylons; sometimes went bare legged and drew a black line up the back of leg to imitate seamed stockings. Plaids materials, pleats on skirts were popular. Sturdy shoes on children; shoes had to last for a long time as they were rationed; ration tickets one or two per person per year.No tennis shoes or sneakers. Girls sometimes had "muffs" -furry, warm knitted tube just for the hands; hung on a string from neck. Children's clothing was handed down from child to child in family; not following many trends as nowadays.
The land warfare was traditional (conventional), terrain dictating. Offensive & defensive, etc. The armies fighting in Europe, North Africa, Asia, and the pacific were dictate…d according to terrain. But the manuever was the same. Examples: Snow & cities/street/house to house in Europe; Open desert terrain in North Africa, and hot steaming jungles in the South Pacific. All involved, forward, flanking (sides), and defensive movements on the parts of the combatants. This would contrast with WWI's static trench stalemate style of fighting. Tanks also existed and fought during WWI, but on a very small scale. The "Blitzkrieg" utilized a machine (tank) that already existed during WWI. The newer models were simply used in the tactic of being in large numbers and moving as rapidly as possible...this tactic was new. Blitzkrieg means lightning war.Aerial Combat(aircraft verses aircraft-referred to as "Dog-Fighting") remained the same as WWI, only entailing faster, all metal, heavier armed propeller driven airplanes (plus heavy bombers of course). The navies were no different than WWI, even the submarines were used the same way, only more of them, and more effective use of them. Surface warships were nearly the same as WWI, battleships, cruisers, destroyers engaged each other, as in WWI. PT Boats (Patrol Torpedo) were "almost" new, but those types of vessels also existed during WWI and especially during the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905.The only STYLE (tactic, strategy, weapon, etc) of fighting that really changed during WWII (MINUS NUCLEAR WEAPONS) was the aircraft carrier. This weapon was totally new, and had NO precedent in any country's military history. This weapon created the new "style" of aerial dog-fighting, in which even the victor could perish, if he ran out fuel and/or couldn't locate his aircraft carrier (he'd crash into the sea). Pilots had never experienced that kind of warfare before. Sink the opponents floating "air field" and he loses the battle, irregardless of his aerial victories. The carrier further displaced the BATTLESHIP as the capital warship of the world's navies, by virtue of being able to destroy targets at 200 miles away with superb accuracy, verses the maximum effective range of a battleship's 16" guns at 20 miles away, using 500 shells to do even that! If there was any NEW type of warfare, unique to WWII, that had no precedent, it was the aircraft carrier VS aircraft carrier duels of WWII.
Due to fears of spying and sabotage, there was a general relocation and internment of approximately 110,000 Japanese nationals and Japanese-Americans to housing facilities cal…led "War Relocation Camps." Those living in militarily important areas of the Pacific coast were removed from their homes and placed in the large, guarded camps in remote desert areas. While not overtly mistreated, most internees suffered from inadequate facilities, shortages of food, and limited medical care. Despite this, some eligible internees join the American military. Many joined the 442nd Infantry Regiment, a highly decorated unit of Japanese-American soldiers. After three years of mostly negative court decisions, the US Supreme Court declared that the involuntary detention was unconstitutional, and the citizens were released from the camps, most by mid-1945 as the war with Japan neared its end.
They attack us
As with it's partner Germany, Japan's public received only good news. Bad news was suppressed.
Clumsy characterisations of vicious creatures devouring beautiful women, and maps depicting countries.
They conscripted their men, then trained them. Same as Germany, the US, etc.
If you are referring to those that lived in America, they took them all and put them in concentration camps. Despite the fact that they may have been American citizens or have… been born in America. The government was afraid that they might become spy's for Japan or attack US infrastructure.
Near the Russian border at the north; the Indian border to the west; near Australia to the south; and Alaska to the east.
fascism under Mussolini
During World War 2, Japan took over Manchuria and controlled it during September 18, 1931 (called Manchuria Manchukuo after control) and parts of China during the war between …the Chinese and Japanese
During World War 2 under executive order 9066 signed by president Roosevelt, the United States government sent about 120000 people of Japanese decent living in the US to inter…nment camps.
Under Mussolini (until 1943) it was a Fascist dictatorship. After Mussolini, I think (not totally sure) it was a parliamentary democracy.
In US in WW2
The government placed Americans of Japanese descent in internment camps after the attack on Pearl Harbor because they were suspected of being spies, sending signals back to Ja…pan.
Yes. They have compensated most victims
