This paper reviews the memoirs of Prince Konoye, who was privy to a considerable amount of internal information regarding the duplicity of a Japanese agreement with the United States and their intentions of establishing an imperial claim to the Asian-Pacific. Interested in establishing themselves as an autonomous empire, Japan attacked the American naval base at Pearl Harbor as a way to display their "presence" in the Pacific. The anticipation was a negotiation for control in the Asian-Pacific territories; however, Japan underestimated the American reaction to the attack.
