Isoroku Yamamoto

Isoroku Yamamoto

Japanese Navy, admiral of the fleet (posthumously)
In the first six to twelve months of a war with the United States and Great Britain I will run wild and win victory upon victory.More Isoroku Yamamoto quotes [07/15/2011 05:07:30]
Should hostilities once break out between Japan and the United States, it is not enough that we take Guam and the Philippines, nor even Hawaii and San Francisco. To make victory certain, we would have to march into Washington and dictate the terms of peace in the White House. I wonder if our politicians, among whom armchair arguments about war are being glibly bandied about in the name of state politics, have confidence as to the final outcome and are prepared to make the necessary sacrifices.More Isoroku Yamamoto quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A military man can scarcely pride himself on having smitten a sleeping enemy; it is more a matter of shame, simply, for the one smitten.More Isoroku Yamamoto quotes [07/15/2011 05:07:00]
The mindless rejoicing at home is really appalling; it makes me fear that the first blow against Tokyo will make them wilt at once...I only wish that [the Americans] had also had, say, three carriers at Hawaii...More Isoroku Yamamoto quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You cannot invade mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass.More Isoroku Yamamoto quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
