Japan Battleships prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor Part 2

Japan had 12 battleships prior to the start of World War II. With only one other started. The Battleship Shinano (Yamato Class) 72000 tons. After the start of the war, Japan saw the need for more aircraft carriers and the Shinano was converted to a aircraft carrier. She was the largest carrier until the launch of the USS Forrestal CV-59 that was launched in Dec. 1954. Japan would not build or launch another battleship after the Yamato in Sept. 1941. On the morning of Dec. 7th, 1941, Japan had the most powerful fleet. They had 2 of the largest battleships in the world – The Yamato & Musashi. Most people are mistaken in thinking the allies knew the true size of the Yamato and caliber of her main guns. This was not known until near the end and even after the war. When documents were discovered giving the true actual design facts on the Yamato class battleship. Oddly enough with Japan’s successful aircraft carrier attack on Pearl Harbor, they made the Yamato & Musashi obsolete! Neither battleship ever went in battleship on battleship type combat. The Yamato and Musashi mainly provided escort and bombardment during the war, right up until both were sunk by US carrier based aircraft. The only real ship to ship combat that either ship had action in was the Battle off Samar. When both the Yamato & Musashi were sunk, the loss of life was great. An estimated 2498 of the 2700 crew members on Yamato were lost, including Vice-Admiral Seiichi Itō, the fleet commander. The Musashi crew

Churchill’s secret weapon. Nazi Germany’s greatest foe. Ian Fleming’s inspiration. Discover how a hardware salesman from Canada changed the fate of nations and helped win World War Two. Sir Winston Churchill once said, “In war, the truth is so valuable that it must be protected by a bodyguard of lies.” At the outset of WWII, in the face of Nazi aggression and American apathy, the British PM required facts and fiction to achieve his goal of defending Great Britain. Churchill trusted one man above all others to generate both. That man was Sir William Stephenson, The True Intrepid. Stephenson changed the course of the Twentieth Century, yet even after his death he remains firmly in the shadows. From his early family life in Winnipeg to heroic deeds on the front lines of World War One, to his pivotal role during the cold war, Stephenson blazed a trail so unique that history is divided on how he should be remembered. Previous accounts of his life have been rife with factual errors, no accident when you consider Stephenson himself once said, “Nothing deceives like a document.” Now, for the first time ever, comes an accurate account of his work outside the established intelligence community where, under the guise of British Passport Control, his agents perfected coding, forgery, counter-espionage and propaganda, all with the intent of defeating Hitler’s military juggernaut. In this hour-long documentary, the life of a master spy is examined more closely than ever before
