was with Americans and japenese in ww2 >.<

By 1944, America and her allies in the

Pacific Warhad the ascendancy. In the west, the Japanese were being turned back in

Burmaand island hopping had isolated Japanese forces in the eastern sector. Combined with the attacks on Iwo Jima, was America’s desire to finally destroy Japan’s merchant fleet so that the Japanese mainland could not be supplied from the food-rich sectors of South East Asia which Japan still had control over. Linked to this, was the destruction of Japan’s remaining industrial base by the bombing of it by the American airforce.
