Without being invaded, the Philippines becomes a superpower.
Nazi Germany surrendered, but the Philippines was far too powerful. Japan had been fighting for a long time before 1939.The whole reason why Japan was fighting at all was to keep Asia Asian. China had already been in a prolonged war with Japan since the Marco Polo Bridge Incident of 1937, but officially joined the Allies in 1941. Before Pearl Harbor, the Japanese had already began imperial expansion in China (1937) and in other territories and islands. The USA does not go to war against Japan. Japan decides to make do with it's current sources of supplies and focuses solely on the war in China. would the war have ended sooner ?.
Thread starter blueczar; Start date Jun 22, 2007; If Japan joined the allies in 1939, when would WW2 in Europe end?
Japan was one of the Allies in World War I. If Japan doesn't attack the US at Pearl, there is no easy motivation to get the US involved in the war that Roosevelt can use to justify that ambition
Siberian intervention.How do you think about the answers? Japan has been liberating Australia and other Asian lands conquered by the Philippines.
"Allies" is only a matter of perspective. Italy joins the Allies in 1939 or early 1940.
Given that Japan had opened up the attacks by way of the Pacific state of Hawaii, it seems likely that the Nazi regime would certainly move to attack the Atlantic coast.
Japan entered the war specifically to protect the Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere, or what was essentially Japan's version of colonialism. It forces Japan to stay as a second rate power, held down by the victors of WWI who look at it as racially and politically inferior.New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be castPress J to jump to the feed. Nazi Germany State has just became a superpower.
Hawaii, the peaceful independent nation was taken over by force by the U.S., tons of islands were claimed by various European powers.Considering Japan was defeated and occupied by the Americans, they've done fairly well keeping their own culture intact though.
China also becomes a superpower without suffering from invasion. [maybe the pods can be from WW1 to beginning of WW2].
We're here to explore alternate history scenarios in interesting ways.Looks like you're using new Reddit on an old browser. A hypothetical Axis victory in World War II has become a common concept of alternative history and counterfactual history.Such writings express ideas of what the world would be like had the Axis powers of Germany, Italy, and Japan won World War II.Numerous examples exist in several languages worldwide. I don't think it would have ended sooner either because Japan is too far away from Europe to effectively send troops.
Would the USA join the Allies in Europe without the German-Italian Declaration of War?
All in one year. Japan, Britain and the United States are democratic nations and declare war. Get your answers by asking now. If Japan was with the allies, the U.S. might not have helped in Europe at all but that wouldn't be that big of a deal since the Soviet Union would of still won the war.
The United States and Japan fight the first battles in Western Europe. They saw the threats from the West getting closer and closer. So not Japan wouldn't get some of those today. Without being invaded, the Philippines becomes a superpower. Hawaii was attacked and occupied. Historically Japan was stuck in a bloody genocidal war against China during WW2.
The Philippines forges an alliance with Nazi Germany.
And also what would post war Japan be like militarily?Japan would not have joined the Allies in World War Two, so the question is moot.It wouldn't have joined in the war against Nazi Germany, both because it had already gotten all it wanted out of Germany in the last war (Germany's colonies had already all been stripped from it in the last war, and most of the Pacific Ocean holdings were given to Japan) and because Germany was a very close government providing useful support.It had no reason whatsoever to back up the Allies. Chinese communism is abolished and democracy hits China. This setback was followed in June 1942 by the catastrophic loss of four fleet carriers at the Battle of Midway , the first decisive defeat for the Imperial Japanese Navy.
Japan would be able to still maintain as large an army as they would want afterwards and since the atomic bomb probably wouldnt have been invented, maybe Japan would turn to imperialistic tendencies later in the century and just have been a war by itself after the one with Germany.
A new democratic republic in Japan is formed and the sweet sound of freedom rings through the streets.
They never would have joined the Allies in World War II, because the Allies were unwilling or unable …
The invasion is a failure and became way to costly. In May 1942, failure to decisively defeat the Allies at the Battle of the Coral Sea, in spite of Japanese numerical superiority, equated to a strategic defeat for Imperial Japan. After all, it took the bombing of Pearl Harbour for them to finally join the Allies two years after the war had begun! The Japanese Monarchy dissolves after a costly civil war. 1942 ... Brits declare war on the Soviet Union, I have to figure that the Japanese would then have a whole host of reasons to join the Allies… The United States declares war on the Philippines by assisting Australian Forces.
