  2. What an amazing seriers. I always knew about the general counter offensive of the American Army in the Pacific, but never knew how Japan expanded in the Pacific and Indochina

  3. They spotted the invasion force and sent out planes to intercept but somehow the garrison was caught completely by surprise? Man the dutch musta been smoking the really strong weed that day.

  4. I hope you guys are simultaneously editing these videos so that you can release a long "Dutch East Indies" campaign video, a long "Japanese Conquer the Phillipines" video, etc.

    All you'd need to do is edit them into those bits while you make them, and then cut out the "Meanwhile…"

  5. 've played as Japan in HOI3 on easy, been able to fulfill the taking of Australia, Honolulu and India. Still had to expand for resources.
    -knowitall

  6. It seems to me that the allies in early 1942 were commanded by Zeros, like Brooke Popham and Wavell, while the Japanese were equipped with Zeros.

  7. Were the Japanese that good or what was going on coz it looks like they were just rolling over armies and armies, damn

  8. I just celebrated my birthday on January 18th ♑️, so it was nice to hear my birth date repeated over and over. (Too bad it was bad guys winning.) 🎂👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Thank-you Kings and Generals!

  9. Hey @Kings and Generals just a simple question here. What are your sources for all this material? You mention two names in the description that made/helped for the script but i dont see any info about how you came upon all this. Please forgive my skepticism but i doubt any person on your team was an eyewitness to the events. hehe

  10. This series is lit. I'm Pole , I always thought that second WW begin in my country, but the truth is, it begins in China. Never War Again!

  11. I'm still wondering where do Imperial Japan get such a massive manpower and resources to mount such a huge scale invasion across all fronts in Asia??

  12. 41st Battalion Philippine Scout was led by Gen. Vicente Lim, who's sucessfully defended their line by was ordered to retreat at Bagac Orion Line.

  13. Thanks for your interesting videos, sorry if put ¨interested¨, i mean ¨interesting¨ in other comments.

  14. Amazing work by kings and generals. Really enjoying this series and its details. This part of the war is hardly spoken about

  15. The Japanese were island hopping while fighting the Chinese in China (not the easiest terrain to fight in)…. all with an army that was built up <100 years prior to taking on these endeavors… insane
