I had been reading about Tojo's history and was surprised that he was not Prime minister at the start of the war (Looking at other European Authoritarians and how they saw things through from start to end).
I do not understand why there were so many different people that held the office around the time.
I am making the assumption that Japan's participation in WW2 started with the Marco Polo bridge incident and subsequent invasion of China rather than Pearl Habour.
I have only been reading from Wikipedia, and no books specifically. I am rather new to having a more detailed interest in History.
