Matsuoka was an American-educated Japanese foreign minister who became a vocal advocate for Japanese expansionism, echoing the America he so admired. His promotion of alliances and relationships with countries such as Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, however, not only led Japan to war with the United States, but also led to Matsuoka\'s involvement with and eventual indictment for atrocities committed during the war.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
