U.S. ArmyArlington, VA – While many Americans know December 7th, 2012, as the 71st anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, few are familiar with the role General George Patton played in foreshadowing it.

The Japanese Empire had been on the move in the Orient since its defeat of Russia in 1904 at Port Arthur, Manchuria.
