We were very lucky in WW2 that the Japanese Admirals were more egomaniac-ial and stupid than our naval and marine corps flag officer racketeers. They were more obsessed with sinking our fleet in a feel-good duel reliving Tsushima of 1904 than even Admiral King was who had to be ORDERED by President FDR to convoy escort civilian oil tanker/cargo ships to keep Britain from starving. King had to be ORDERED by FDR to build and operated 100+ "jeep" escort aircraft carriers that with our long-range seaplanes (King liked these to find fleets to sink) smothered the German U-boats as well as the Japanese fleet and half of their cargo ships--so even inept frontal assault marines could prevail over starved-out, dug-in enemy infantry. U.S. Army General MacArthur was smarter and bypassed the starving Japanese infantry employing tri-phibious (air, land, sea) warfare hopping from air-base to air base taken by Airborne Paratroops and amphibious assaults backed by light and medium tanks to further cut-off the enemy from their home islands. USMC TALKS about "maneuver warfare" while MacArthur DID IT, taking us all the way to Japan--the long way but with far less casualties than marines suffered taking islands we didn't even need. Japan encircled by air-dropped and submarine-laid sea mines and the tank-mechanized Russians they feared greatly having been wiped out in land combats early in WW2 by them, would have surrendered without the atomic bombs being dropped. We didn't need the handfuls of large, sexy egomaniac lover's fleet aircraft carriers that Admiral King lusted for, either:

Thank God, the Japanese brass did not understand the importance of logistics like our lower ranking USN sub officers did who sank the other half of their merchant fleet with our excellent Gato class submarines. Until the SC-1/2 SeaHawk, the Japanese had the best SEAPLANE fighters of WW2 and had they cared about their merchant ships supplied them with battleship/cruiser catapults and Zero (Rufe) fighter float planes to ward off our air attacks--and eventually radar and MAD-detect our submarines to get their supplies through to their island garrisons the USMC casualties and glorious self-validation would have been 100%.

Another thing the Japanese were BETTER AT THAN US AMERICANS--that's right--like their long-range Long Lance torpedoes, too--was their long-range submarines which could operate SEAPLANES to scout ahead for our fleet and do small bombing attacks.

As we will see in the next video, the Japanese of WW2 were far more advanced in naval warfare than we are TODAY.
