WW2: The Price of Empire Season 1 Episode 7 - Turning Point

49m 44s

Japan’s escalation of the War in the East is devastatingly effective – Malaya and Singapore fall and the myth of European superiority, on which centuries of Empire have been constructed, comes crashing down. But despite Japan’s success it is possible to see, from the start, the inevitability of her defeat – she has roused the might of the United States and the battles of Midway and the Coral Sea foretell the inevitable outcome.
