The last (and perhaps first - nicht war?) Non Western nation/state that ever waged war the Western Way was Japan.
While totally hot for western style war making paraphernalia like blitzkrieg, submarines, air craft carriers and amphibious ops, Japan never really caught on to the other Western stuff at the time - like consensual gov, egalitarianism and unbridled free inquiry.
And during war, Nippon blew off being gallant or magnanimous in victory, actually being cruel and merciless to captured civilians and disarmed combatants alike.
A pre emptive secret sneak attack at Pearl Harbor enraged Great Satan and filled her with a terrible resolve to literally bury Nippon under an avalanche of American war materiel.
Stuff like Wake Island, the horrific Bataan Death March and other assorted cruelties made Americans determined to do it - regardless of the cost.
After the fight to the death mentality Nippon displayed at Iwo Jima and Okinawa, Great Satan obliged and deployed new clear weaponry - not once - but twice.
65 years ago today Japan finally screamed "God! Please! Stop!"
All the hot! deets were totally forced upon and accepted by Japan on 2 Sept 1945 on board USS Missouri
Great Satan xformed Nippon into a fun, functional free choice democrazy that hasn't bothered anybody since.
Happy Victory over Japan Day!
