I've watched a documentary, and it showed the japanease being pummelled.
The Japanese started out with a numerical superiority and..
The first few battles after pearl were nearly even, the problem they (the Japanese) faced was they could not afford a 1-1 loss against us.
Because our industry could double or even triple to quadruple theirs.
Which is what it was happened for several battles dead heat even.
After midway and as luck would shine on the US Navy the balance now shifted and could never return in Japans favor, which indecently
is exactly what Yamamoto predicted would happen to the letter.
It's hell when you lead men into certain death but march forward anyway. Just as the King of Rohan said o the Roheren .
Sire but we cannot defeat them them can we?
No , but we shall meet them in battle, never the less.
The dragons teeth poised for war.
