Overview

Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto smashed the American fleet at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, yet the man who first conceived of the Pacific war — Japans surprise attack, the seizure of the Philippines & Guam, & the American island-hopping campaign — was a British naval correspondent, Hector C. Bywater. He wrote a series of brilliant books & articles in the 1920s & 1930s that prophetically outlined naval strategies that would read like a blueprint for the Pacific Theater during World War II. Bywaters ideas created an uproar & then were quickly forgotten. But Yamamoto adopted Bywaters ideas as his own. Photos.
