Many Japanese were stunned and fearful when war was declared against the West in 1941. But after the victories of Hong Kong, Malaya, and Singapore, their earlier fears were lost in exultation. By 1944, the scales had tipped fully against Japan, but still they defended their homeland, unaware of the terrible weapon yet to be used against them which would end the war.
