Japan 1937- 45

Banzai: 13 December 1937

Decisive battle
Winter storm victory now
Brave soldiers succeed.



Hubris: 8 December 1941

Decisive battle
Winter sun melts protection
Planes triumphant.

Tora! Tora! Tora!

Tora! Tora! Tora!

Nemesis: 6 August 1945

Decisive battle
Summer comes. No resistance
Honour gone forever.
