The tragic attacks of December 7, 1941 shook the island of Oahu, and the United States, forever. The lives lost, and that tragic day are things that we want to remember and honor. The Japanese dreamed of an Empire in Asia and began their quest in early 1931. They overran Manchuria and established it as a state, which they named Manchukuo. Moving into China, the Japanese were initially successful, but ultimately encountered the resistance of the Chinese, under the government Chiang Kai-shek. A crisis arose in 1937, when Japan launched a major offensive in an effort to reduce China into submission. When this tactic was unsuccessful, Japan adopted a policy of economic strangulation. By 1939, major coastal ports were seized and the Chinese capital was forced to move from Nanking to the inland area of Hankow. In 1940, the French allowed the entry of Japanese troops into Indochina. //pearlharboroahu.com Smithsonian Channel
