He lied to Australia about the British support against the Japanese. Winston had already betrayed Australia at the Arcadia Conference to the Japanese in Washington, December 1941. Churchill also wanted to keep the Australian troops in the Middle East to use them In Burma so they could defend India against the advancing Japanese instead of letting them defend their own country.
America did not want to be a target for enemy countries. President Franklin Roosevelt called December 7, 1941, "a date which will live in infamy." Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in order to destroy the Pacific fleet so the U.S. would not be able to fight back as they spread across the South Pacific. After Japan attacked Pearl Harbor America joined the war. This single attack killed more
America began stopping provide valuable resources to Japan after finding out that they wanted to expand, which the Americans were not happy about. President Truman instructed him supreme commander of the Allied Powers in Japan. His experience on the global stage came through for this job instruction and successfully encouraged the
This was not the case because the Government didn’t allow the Issei to become citizens because of bias stereotypes the Americans had of the Issei. The Nisei had their rights violated because by birth they were Americans so that automatically makes them loyal to America. When the government came and collected them, they were given questionnaires that was supposed to prove their loyalty on how they answered, which meant the government was collecting all types of private information without valid reason which is in violation of The Fourth Amendment. When Robert Gordon Sproul gave his speech, he took the stance of defending the Japanese Americans. “The American citizen of Japanese ancestry
Our friends died for Australia,’ this displays how the Australians saw Kokoda campaign as an extremely important battle as they believed that if Japan captured Port Moresby Australia would be invaded. An example of when Allied numbers assisted on the Kokoda Track was at Buna and Gona where the Allies initially failed because their 10,000 men were no match for the equal number of Japanese entrenched defenders. However with the Allied reinforcements, field guns and tanks the Japanese could not compete and so the battle turned in the allies favour. This is just one example where Allied numerical
How did the attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941 turn the tide against the Japanese during World War 2? Japan began their deadly attack on the U.S pacific fleet moored at pearl harbour on the pacific island of Oahu, at 07:55, December 7 1941. This attack turned the tide on Japan because war had not yet been declared between the two countries and up until that point, America enters the war after years of neutrality. “Although quick in execution, the attacks years.’’[Source B] Japan relied on America to supply many of the natural and industrial resources, but taken aback and alarmed by Japan’s aggression towards them, America allowed the commercial treaty they had with japan dating back thirty one years, to expire in 1940.

Petrov went to Australia in 1951, under the influence of the Soviet Union. Their job was to watch over Soviet Citizens and to prevent them from defecting against the Union and their country and also to try and find out background information about the Australian Political Parties, but instead of watching Soviet Citizens and preventing them from defecting against the Soviet Union, ironically, Vladimir himself defected the Union because the ASIO started receiving information about Vladimir Petrov being a spy for the Union. DONE Vladimir Petrov was afraid to go back to Russia after working in Canberra as a diplomat, at that time, Stalin was in power in Russia and he was assassinated, this scared Petrov and made him not want to return to Russia in fear of what happened to Stalin might happen to him as well. He also did not see what future Russia had to offer him if he returned to Russia after being caught as a spy by the
Australia had come under attack from Japan during the war. Britain had promised to help Australia but had failed to do so and it was only from the help of the United States that Australia was able to keep the Japanese out. This incident made the Australian government realise that only 7 million people could not defend Australia and that they needed more people so that Australia would not be overwhelmed by any future conflicts. It was said that Australia had to ‘populate or perish’. At the end of the war in 1945, countries with devastated communities and economies started rebuilding.
Given the opportunity and privilege as a POW to use creative license on the radio show "Zero Hour," Major Cousens decided he would have to destroy Japan 's radio program from the inside. He was given permission by Mitsushio to choose who would be next on the "Zero Hour" program: a female disc jockey. Cousens needed to be sure he could trust this woman 's loyalty to the Allies, along with making sure she did not have a voice fit for radio, so it would be easier to mask the Japanese propaganda being spread throughout the South Pacific using her verbal implications. Cousens chose Iva Toguri because of her raspy voice (much to the confusion of fellow POWs working on the show), and also because she was just as loyal to the United States as he was to Great Britain and Australia, so he believed she would understand his scheme against their common enemy. When they met, she was skeptical about having been chosen out of a pool of much more qualified announcers, but Cousens assured her she had been picked for a specific reason.
Imperial Japanese forces were intent on landing a large force in Port Moresby, New Guinea and seize control of air fields on the island. The secondary plan was to also isolate Australia from allied support. “Early in 1942, Japan decided to block the Allies from setting up bases in Australia. Operation MO would send a large invasion force to Port Moresby, the capital of New Guinea. From Port Moresby, the Japanese would be able to project air power beyond the northern tip of Australia and establish bases even further south” (Hearn, Chester G., Carriers in Combat: The Air War at Sea, Stackpole Books: Mechanicsburg, PA, 2005).
