Histories of the Great War have tended to either ignore Japan’s role or dismiss it as too little, too late, with Japan merely acting in its own interests. Join Professor Ian Gow OBE as he explores the reality of Japan’s role in the war, which included dispatch of Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) ships to protect British troops and supply ships under attack from German submarines in the Mediterranean and reflect on reasons for why Japan’s role has been dismissed or neglected.
