comment Why did Hideyoshi invade Korea?
About the guerrilla resistance, the Korean royal court was rather unpopular among the people, and the Japanese believed they would not support the king (which is, in a way, true). Only when the Korean king had almost given up fighting did the guerrilla resistance begin.

comment Why did Hideyoshi invade Korea?
I disagree with you that the Japanese navy could not have matched the Koreans. The Korean navy was not in a strong position at all. It was only the division led by Admiral Yi Sun-Sin that was better than the naval divisions that the Japanese reached were routed at the beginning of the war. The Japanese had no idea before starting the invasion that Admiral Yi's naval division existed. Admiral Yi himself was not highly regarded in the Korean court. He owed his rise to his friend who had become the prime minister of Korea.

comment Did Hitler really support Subhash Chandra Bose's cause and did he do anything to help Bose?
Also, Indian PoWs had already formed an army -- but they lacked a leader who had the stature of Bose. Bose was an extremely respected leader in India, and had even defeated Gandhi's candidate once in Congress.

True, but Bose was allowed to go based on the request of the Japanese. Unlike the Japanese, Hitler never allowed Bose to develop a provisional government as long as he was in Germany. And about the spy network in India, it was not at all effective. Bose was close to a lot of people who were sympathetic to the USSR in India, making it easy for the communists to infiltrate this spy network.

comment What was Gandhi's post-factum view of the Partition?
@PieterGeerkens Exactly my view too. Apart from what he himself said, most of the leaders in the Congress Working Committee owed their rise to Gandhi himself and it is hard to believe that they would have gone directly against him.
