In the Dec 2007 issue of Military History magazine Col. Malcolm Muir makes this statement, "In the fall of 1941,the Japanese army was an excellent light infantry army,and Prime Minister and army General Hideki Tojo told the emperor of Japan,"Wars can be fought and won with ease". He'd seen the Japanese army in the field was very potent. But he's not taking into account the economic or political considerations. His view is so narrow that he is dooming Japan to defeat." Do you agree? Was it the lack of consideration of economics and politics that doomed Japan?
