The first section of this chapter examines the sinews of modern war. It looks at the impact of American unrestricted submarine warfare on Japan, IJN's concepts of naval power and trade protection, oil shortages, the meagre initial part by British submarines, Australian aerial minelaying in the Netherlands East Indies, and the poor inter-service co-ordination by the Japanese. The second section describes the fall of Tôjô. The last section describes the advantages of kamikazes and their accomplishments in the Philippines.

Keywords:   modern war, submarine warfare, IJN, naval power, minelaying, Japan, Tôjô, kamikaze
