    In the years following World War I, Japan began to flex its imperial power over the Pacific, controlling former German colonies and moving into areas of China and Southeast Asia. General William (Billy) Mitchell, a decorated US veteran, saw this as a warning sign—that Japan would soon test its military might on other world powers, namely the United States. Join historian Ronald J. Drez as he discusses Mitchell’s foreshadowing of the events of December 7, 1941, and his book Predicting Pearl Harbor: Billy Mitchell and the Path to War.
