In this episode, I am continuing my two part series on the rise and fall of the Japanese Pacific Empire. Starting right where we left off, at Japan's victory against Russia in 1905, I will discuss the growth of Japan from a then powerful empire into an oppressive and almost unstoppable militaristic superpower. And I will of course end at its downfall in 1945 at the hands of the United States. Follow @the.historynerd on Intagram and @MatthewMotes10 on twitter.
