This class will conclude the study of America's only truly popular war. Enrollment in the first two courses is not a requirement for this class. The course will begin with our early relations with Japan, which began in the 19th century thru the Japanese military expansion that led to the attack on Pearl Harbor. We will then follow the American response to this attack as our military almost immediately goes on the offense and will conclude with the use of atomic weapons, which ended the war. Specific topics to be discussed will include Gen. MacArthur's leadership in the war, US Marine tactics and the Japanese land war in Asia that will ultimately bring about the VietNam War and present-day situation with North Korea and "little rocket man". Also to be discussed will be moral issues such as the use of the atomic bomb and Japanese racism toward not only white Americans, but also other Asian people they conquered. Other topics will include the myth that the Japanese surrendered unconditionally and the transformation of the Japanese military dictatorship into that of a democratic nation under MacArthur in post-war Japan. Due to the nature of this subject graphic details and language will be used.
