Southern Operation

Early in 1941 Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto (Yamamoto, Isoroku) started planning the Southern Operation, the conquest of south Asian territory essential to the establishment of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. The Hawaii Operation, the plan to destroy the US Navy at Pearl Harbor, was a key element of the strategy.
