There are people in these comments that need to understand that the empire of japan and present day japan are very different...

You know what's funny? If Japan and German won the war, we Japanese would be talking shit about America and England
S Dog
All people and all countries throughout their history have done shitty things. The end.
Japan: it is our DESTINY to rule Asia! America: Nope, no more fascists. *Hits with nukes* ... America: Japan? You still there? Japan: KaWaii SeNpAi WeSt. UK: Ya hit'em too hard!

now, Japan is one of the most powerful economy of the world. good tradition, good innovative technology, good people, good order, good country.

This video is so fascinating.   From the comments,  however, one can see that psychological and emotional wounds from this period of history are still raw and bleeding for many people even after more than 90 years have passed.
The Japanese did some horrific things during the war. but what country hasn't? am sure if one were to have a look, nearly every country has done some unspeakable acts to one another.
Ricardo Corchado
I like this documentary because it shows the point of view of the Japanese not the European View plus the Japanese military was a completely independent branch in the imperial government unlike here that there's a civilian leader the military was let loose to do what it wanted
Rob Billeaud
It's impossible to overstate the importance of the ability of the U.S. to break the Japanese naval codes. None of the major American victories in the Pacific, at least prior to 1944, would have been able to be accomplished without that.
why do documentaries always miss out key components.Japan had no obsession to rule the world. It simply wanted to invade enough land for resources to match the military might of euro superpowers and US, after all these countries had colonize all over the world.True, what Japan did was a crime, but were the other superpowers at the time setting a good example? by colonizing whatever they wanted and stealing resources? As soon as a non-white nation wanted to get in on the action, it was sanctioned to death by the other white nations.

The Japanese RAPED, MURDERED & PILLAGED their way through ALL of China and Southeast Asia during WWII. They emerged from WWII WEALTHIER than they were prior to the war. The VAST MAJORITY of their military and government leaders were NEVER held accountable for their WAR CRIMES & CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY! MANY went on to succeed in the corporate world. To this day the Japanese nation refuses to take responsibility for their HORRIFIC actions during WWII. Military & government leaders from WWII are still VENERATED IN SHRINES throughout Japan. Can you even imagine Germany erecting shrines to Goebbels, Himmler, Hess or ADOLF HITLER?! The Japanese Government and people still regard their own MASTERS OF GENOCIDE in HIGH REGARD!!! For this reason, MANY people the world over still harbor resentment towards Japan and it's people!
Japanese basicly lost the war at midway]
Japanese Hippocracy, they accuse the Americans for denying them immigration to the USA, and say the Americans have no honor and treat them like 2nd class citizens, yet all the while Japan were invading China (Manchuria) denying any Chinese immigration to Japan, and treating them like 2nd class citizens (actually killing them out right) and waged out right war on Chinese civilians , raping, killing and pillaging there cities (Nanking one of many). Japan had no honor in anything they did , total dishonorable actions, waging war on civilians and nations who where at peace with them.
Marcus Williams
it's kinda difficult to tell who's lying about why the war started , too many nations involved
Kulbir Singh
We are all human, so why bicker about the past. What have each and everyone of you done over the past 4 years? I hope something productive and positive; created a business, new job opportunities, or pursue a passion anyone?
For Japan these are the consequences of their actions, For countless war crimes and war mongering greed, They deserved the Atom Bomb.
History is written by victors.

36:25 "japans people have a strong sense of personal and national discipline" So raping young girls and killing them are signs of a strong sense of discipline? Those cowards get praised lol
Very deep and detailed doc, Recommend!
Dennis Vance
In Japan, as in all nations in all ages, women were told to give their sons to war and keep their tears to themselves. Neither a woman not a feminist, I wonder if the leaders of the worlds militaries would be as ready to send their sons off to war if they had carried them for the nine months before they were born.
I miss the old times when Japan wasn't making hentai

Great video. Thanks for uploading this. I love how Japan is now a leading and ass-kicking country in a peacefull way.
Corpus Callosum
Very impressive, almost poetic documentary, thanks. But commentators seem to just repeat what the film was warning us, how fast an empire fell, taking most humanity down with them. When I traveled in Japan 1993, I was so amazed at the self-less, polite, orderly and just beautiful sparkles of humanity shown in old and young people. The middle aged tour guy told us, a thousand years ago, Japan had no written language/culture so they sent envoys to China and copied the whole blueprints of Nanking ( karmic retribution?) to make their beautiful cities of Kyoto, Nara, etc and preserve it better than China. Wars in the brutal 20th century can only be used as what not to do and what to extract lessons from. It's Japan's military warlords and emperor that ruined the country. But if the beautiful people didn't learn their ant-like worshiping stupidity (French executed Louis XVI 1793 and now is 2015, if you want to stand tall, punk intended, start from there!), their country's and more importantly, the world's suffering is wasted and will repeat itself. Germany has Merkel meanwhile Abe is trying to stir up the samurai spirit again! Just listen to your ancestors, esp. the intellectuals then, they're weeping in their urns. Separatist, superior feelings and greed will only lead to utter ruin, physically and spiritually!
I admire Japan because even after the country was bombed to earth, they managed to be the third largest economy after USA and China. Why can't other countries be like Japan what's different and what sets them apart from undeveloped countries?
New Era
japanese are one a hell of warriors, the Americans have gone mad through what they have suffered on daily basis, their combative spirit were critical, they couldn't live even a day in this hell, that's why they use the atom bomb to put an and to the suffering and humiliation.
the United States has TRUELLY been the DEMON of the world. I am Native American. I KNOW this for a FACT. they lie and recreate stories. like they been doing throught history

I'm amazed by how people cannot distinguish between a murderous dictatorship influenced by fascism and a modern democratic nation rooted in traditionalism.
Jim Ryan
the fall of my pants is like the fall of japan 
The bombs worked. Not only did it force Japan to surrender. It scared the heck out of American enemies. It let them know, we have this power and we will use it. It was a bold statement to the world. Do not mess with us.

Japan deserved 2 nuclear weapon bombing.

If a Japanese guy from the beginning of the 20th century went to Tokyo today, his eyes might explode, and that is AFTER 2 nuclear bombs

Japan is no different than any worlds people or nation. They are human beings like all of us, and like almost all countries the people were brainwashed by sociopaths who often got into power due to their convincing character as in Hitler's case. The chronic claim that Japan had never been defeated was drilled into the people by these sociopaths. The people paid dearly for this brainwashing. The only thing good about this is the lesson that must be more than learned, it must be maintained throughout future generations. The lesson, dont follow so easily, your leaders could be running red lights and crash your nation.
Craig Heller
this doc fails to mention how Teddy Roosevelt betrayed his promise to protect the Koreans and basically handed the region to the Japanese, who in encouraged, thus setting the stage for WWII
Both Japan and Germany were becoming very overpopulated and needed "living space". The war was inevitable. What wasn't inevitable was the atrocities they committed. We must understand the how's and why's so this can never happen again.
Stravo Lukos
Based on the stupidity posted below, I am all for rescinding universal suffrage. Stupid, arrogant sub-people should not vote or replicate. They are best suited for forced labor and organ harvesting. And they are the best argument for negative eugenics.
Mr_x 1992
I don't think humanity can forgive Japan for the attrocities they commited, they paid with the atomic bombs but i feel that was not enough, they deserve to pay more
Sucks that this anime never got a sequel. *[Banzai's Internally]*

And yet people fought to defend the very thing that is destroying the west today... How stupid people were to back the Communists...
Humble one
They had cool uniforms..their hats with a dew rag in the back looked bad ass. Plus they gave us Godzilla, Gamera and aikido. The Soldiers fought for their leaders no different than we did and still do.
Fan Allen
If Japanese government can officially and sincerely appologize to those asian people who suffered a lot from WW2,that would be best ! But ,sorry Mr.Abe, you never do official appology.
Nitin Kataria
Japan is still the number one Asian country in culture, innovation and nationalism
Colonel Frontline
Oh Japan. Once a national that love destroying everyone lives. Is now nothing more but a "Puppet State" to Uncle Sam. Oh how the mighty have fallen.
Arkay The Divine
Man there's alot of trolling by profligate Americans in the comments.
If anyone tells you how barbaric Hiroshima and Nagasaki was, just reply, "Yes, because if that had not happened, World War-2 would have been the nicest and most humane war ever fought."

The jappers did what everyone else at the time did in war perhaps with the exception of rape in mass if we aren't going to talk about the russians either, that being said sheep are still going to justify the use of multiple nuclear weapons (potentially one of the largest war crime in human history) despite the fact that thousands of he and incendiary explosives could do the job on their paper city too. You can't rip on a nation for killing the innocent while simultaneously justifying using experimental tech to scare the ruskies with your monopoly over the atomic bomb in a glorified test.

amazing that these propaganda documentaries never mentions about how the war in china was even started. Japanese embassy and business in shanghai, nanking, and in many other places in china were the target of attack when the chinese civil war erupted. japan had the right to defend itself by sending in its troops to protect their businesses and civilians in china by international law, yet the u.s. government supported those chinese warlords by selling its weapons(which is an act of war by the international law at that time) and making profit out the mess in asia. Japan never wanted war, hell they didnt officially go to war against china till 1941 when chiang kai shek's army declared war on japan first.

All Japan wanted to do was FLEX on these broke bois😤

Pride of Asia, Respect to Japan and Japanese people on fighting fire with fire against the Europeans.

These moving pictures from 18xx are so precious.
The clip doesn’t rehearse the Russo-Japanese war in any depth. That was the real beginning of the rise of Japanese pride and prowess and it’s a fascinating saga in itself.
Japan from 1890 to 1942 was more impressive than Hitler's Germany and Napoleon's France. That's how an Empire should be born. Complete domination of land, naval and air in their respective region. Hitler and Napoleon had one flaw...lack of Naval prowess and that was their downfall as it would be Japan's when they lost their Navy.

I love Japan and I'm from America!
Guadacanal actually took place AFTER Australian troops gained accendancy over the Japanese in New Guinea. The first defeat in WW2 of Japanese forces was when their invasion at Milne Bay was thrown back into the sea by Australian troops. This was the first time in the war that the Japanese had failed to take an objective by force. From THAT point the Japanese were permanently on the defensive,
Unbiased and informative. Great documentary. Now we only still lack a good one for the 2nd Sino-Japanese War alone. The ones on Youtube are all propaganda shit.

After finally visiting Japan, it confirmed my perception towards Japanese. The Japanese people and their culture are far superior than any others in the world then and now.

The Japanese still don't get it. They still play the victim and refuse to admit their role in ww2. Fortunately their neighbors remember

Little history, nation took the land and destroyed a culture by killing women and children. Slavey it people. For resources. If it interest where in risk it arm force were send to protect them. Using surprise attack in every conflict. That country is USA. The history between USA and Japan has been falsified. So we can feel better about ourselves. Please read, the real history. It there . Not the fake one.
Wesley P
wow, i never realized that japan was left in total ruin. the fact that they are doing so well today is extremely impressive. they rebuilt their entire nation as is it was never touched. also, nothing lasts forever, japan are now building offensive military divisions again and are on their way to regaining an offensive army. hopefully this time japan takes the right side in war. i would not be shocked to see them also build nukes at some point. both china and north korea pose a massive threat to japan now. they need their military more then ever before. the world is not done fighting. the only thing stopping us from having large scale wars today is the threat of nuclear destruction, but even that wont last forever. one day 1 empire will rule the world and i have a feeling that the next world war will be won by the country best suited for nuclear war. we may see death on a scale never before witnessed in human history.

This is the problem with taking away individual thought and action! We should all live in free societies able to express our own opinions without fear of violent reprisal!
##STRONG  QUESTIONS##Koreans(young students, old ambassadors,etc.) insist that Japanese army abducted 200,000 Korean daughters for forced sexual service as Comfort Women during the 2nd World War. But, dare I say,I have some simply questions to them. After the 15th of August in 1945, in other words, after getting freedom from Japan, why didn't 200,000 families that were abducted their daughters go to police stations or American MP to seek and help their lovely daughters? Why didn't Koreans, especially 200,000 families, protest about the huge number of abductions against Japan? Why were'nt there anti-Japan movements like  The 1st of March Independence Movement in 1919?

Huikwan Cheung : It is very embarrassing to see all the hateful, misinformed & ignorant comments here regarding this documentary, but also attitudes towards the War, Asian people. As a Westerner, I appalled. I can hope that these attitudes, etc are based on a lack of education I believe you stated earlier. I am student of Chinese and Japanese history and culture. Both have such wonderfully diverse complex cultures with probably even more complicated histories. That's just one humble Westerner/student's opinion, anyways. We Americans forget our war crimes during the war. Japanese interment camps? I believe we have never apologized for this crime. Atomic bombs? Thanks for setting of the Cold War! No people deserved the amount of suffering that came out of that. Have any of studied the fallout of those weapons on the innocence of children? The US only wanted to show of by dropping the bombs; completely unnecessary! I'm gonna stop, I can't change these folks. My point? Cheung? I just wanted you to know we are not all the same. Some of us actually study the facts. No Allied country during War walked away without blood on their hands.
The Japanese want to confuse truth and falsehood of historical revisionism, but they cannot change Japan's barbaric war crimes. We can see the Japan's right-wing devils not only does not recognize war crimes but also employs a large number of right-wing Network Army to distort and wash away the evil history
brian sedlock
No mention of the Japan's contribution in World War I?
Well done. No partisan BS here. Real history! What a treat.

I will forever mourn the Japanese empire, very informative documentary just a bit bias though
37:50 Kawaii!!!! Sry had to do it.

The Japanese people are an amazing people. What happened, happened back then, not now. The extreme right took hold of the country and did what it did. Just like many other countries including the U.S. There are parts of the world we are hated with cause. No country is without guilt.

At the end of the day there was no need to nuke mainland Japan. They could've nuked an island, destroyed it all for maybe a few hundred to 10,000 most dead, with destruction of island being uninhabitable.... Rather than civilian cities... A surrender would've come about from that, if not then nuke mainland. Wasn't fair that.

well, japan politicians never regret what they did in the 1930s and 1940s, and they yet will do it again if they have chance as japan is always an ambitious nation.

Now i understand why most people hate America and Britain. When Britain envaded America and other countries in Asia before, Japanese didn't interfere them. But when Japanese people wanted to expand to have natural resources, America and Britain joined in war. Western people looked themselves as Superior. No wonder why some countries dislike them.

Oh god people saying how Africa is innocent 😂 the tribes still waged war on one another even slave trading prisoners after although they would be takin in by the rival tribe and given freedom eventually/ the women and children but still Africa and any other country in this world has issued violence and atrocities among one another it’s just human nature.
