Synopsis

Allied and Japanese newsreel footage is used to introduce evidence that in 1941 the United States received repeated warnings that the Japanese were planning aggressive action. Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, war is declared, and Japan makes steady gains during the next 6 months. When the Americans retake bases on the Gilbert, Marshall, and Mariana Islands, however, the tide begins to turn. In a desperate attempt to regain their losses, the Japanese resort to the use of Kamikaze pilots, but the United States retaliates with the atom bomb, and Japan is forced into an unconditional surrender.
