lumber mill superintendent Isidore Rich and his French wife, Annie, the daughter of one of his paternal grandfather's Jewish customers who resided in Alexandria, Egypt. The Rich family was one of the first Jewish families to settle in Manila. Having fled the Philippines just weeks before the Japanese (Empire of Japan) attack on Pearl Harbor, they moved to the United States in 1942, where Ben Rich became a naturalized US citizen.

With the rise of the 1917 revolution (Russian Revolution of 1917), the Altay attempted to make their region a separate Burkhanist republic called Oryot, but their support for the Mensheviks during the Civil War (Russian Civil War) led to the venture's collapse after the Bolshevik victory and the rise of Stalin. In the 1940s, the Altay were accused of being pro-Japanese (Empire of Japan), and the word "oyrot" was declared counterrevolutionary. By 1950, Soviet industrialization (History of the Soviet Union (1927-1953)#Planning) policies brought Russian immigrants reducing the proportion of Altay from 50% to 20% of the population.

short work

. Bugs shows no mercy against the Japanese soldiers, greeting them with several racial slurs such as "monkey face" and "slant eyes", making short work of a large sumo wrestler, and bombing most of the Japanese army using various explosives, including grenades hidden in ice cream bars. The cartoon's title is a play on the verb "nip" as in "bite" and "Nip", a then-widely used slur for Japanese people, based on the fact that the Japanese (Japanese language) word for "Japan" is "Nippon" (or "Nihon"). Plot Wedge Donovan (John Wayne) is a tough construction boss, building airstrips in the Pacific for the U.S. Navy during World War II. He clashes with his liaison officer, Lieutenant Commander Robert Yarrow (Dennis O'Keefe), over the fact that his men are not allowed to arm themselves against the Japanese (Empire of Japan). When the enemy lands in force on the island, he finally takes matters into his own hands, leading his men into the fray. This prevents Yarrow from springing a carefully devised trap that would have wiped out the invaders in a murderous machinegun crossfire, with minimal American losses. Instead, many of Donovan's men are killed unnecessarily. On the entry of the Empire of Japan into the war in December 1941, ''Exeter'' formed part of the ABDACOM (American-British-Dutch-Australian Command) naval force intended to defend the Dutch East Indies (Indonesia) from Japanese invasion.160px thumb left ''Exeter'' under attack in the First Battle of the Java Sea (Image:Battle of Java Sea - HMS Exeter under Attack.jpg). South West Pacific Area After the opening of hostilities with Japan (Empire of Japan), Crutchley was promoted to Rear-Admiral and lent to the Royal Australian Navy for service in the South West Pacific Area. On 13 June 1942 Crutchley succeeded Rear-Admiral John Crace (John Gregory Crace) in command of Task Force 44, the Australian Squadron, based in Brisbane, Australia, the last Briton to do so. After the Vichy French defeat in Syria, the 2 2nd Pioneer Battalion was relocated to Tripoli in Libya, where it headquartered itself in an olive grove while carrying out training and garrison duties over the next four months. During November, the battalion was moved to Qatana in Syria, but with the entry of Japan (Empire of Japan) into the war in late 1941, the 6th (6th Division (Australia)) and 7th Divisions were directed to return to Australia for service in the Pacific theatre (Pacific War). In January 1942, Peeler was among the men of the 2 2nd Pioneer Battalion who embarked aboard HMT ''Orcades'' (SS Orcades (1937)) to make the journey back to Australia. He was promoted to Warrant Officer Class II (Warrant officer#Australia) during this time. 124th Cavalry The troopers stationed at Fort Brown from 1929-45 were from the 124th Cavalry Regiment, Texas National Guard (United States National Guard), which became one of the last mounted cavalry regiments in the United States Army. On November 18, 1940, they went into active military training. After the Japanese (Empire of Japan) attack on Pearl Harbor the division served with distinction, dismounted, in the China Burma India Theater (China Burma India Theater of World War II), where a member of the unit from Fort Brown earned the theater's only Medal of Honor (awarded to Jack L. Knight, commanding F Troop). At the Battle of Wau, in January 1943, during World War II, the Australian Army stopped an advance by the Japan (Empire of Japan)ese. A road was established soon after World War II to Lae and this fostered the further development of local timber and agricultural industries that were originally established in support of the mining industry. While much of the mineral reserves have been extracted, industrial gold mining continues at Edie Creek and at the newly established Hidden Valley Gold Mine operated by Morobe Goldfields (a subsidiary of Harmony Gold - South Africa). The actions for which Starcevich received the VC occurred during the Borneo campaign of 1945 (Borneo campaign (1945)). was an administrative post not of Cabinet rank in the government of the Empire of Japan.

He was also a member of the standing committee of the CPPCC (Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference) Shanghai committee. History Ujelang Atoll was claimed by the Empire of Germany along with the rest of the Marshall Islands in 1884. It was the private property of German trading companies since 1880, who maintained copra-plantations on the largest island, also called Ujelang. After World War I, the island came under the South Pacific Mandate of the Empire of Japan. In 1935 there were only some 40 inhabitants. During World War II, the island was occupied by the Company I, 111th Infantry Regiment (28th Infantry Division (United States)), which landed on April 22, 1944 and which used the island as a staging area prior to redeployment to Peleliu on February 1, 1945. Following the end of World War II, the island came under the control of the United States as part of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands until the independence of the Marshall Islands in 1986. The island became a relocation center for the people of Enewetak Atoll in 1947 (due to atomic tests on that island from 1948–1958). The population on Ujelang grew from 145 in 1947 to 342 in 1973, despite near-famine and epidemics, especially in the fifties, due to the scarce supply of fish and vegetables. After the clean-up of Enewetak all inhabitants returned to that island in 1980. A hundred or so soon returned to Ujelang because Enewetak could not support them, but their stay on Ujelang was short-lived. In 1989 Ujelang became permanently uninhabited. Ujelang Atoll is currently owned by the Enewetak Council and is now very rarely visited. History Ailinginae Atoll was claimed by the Empire of Germany along with the rest of the Marshall Islands in 1884. After World War I, the island came under the South Pacific Mandate of the Empire of Japan. Following the end of World War II, it came under the control of the United States as part of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands until the independence of the Marshall Islands in 1986. Ailinginae Atoll has been uninhabited since 1954 when the few islanders were evacuated due to nuclear fallout fears from the Castle Bravo at Bikini Atoll to the northwest. History Namu Atoll was claimed by the Empire of Germany along with the rest of the Marshall Islands in 1884, and the Germans established a trading post. After World War I, the island came under the South Pacific Mandate of the Empire of Japan.

they belonged to the international school. By the late 1970s, the search for Japanese qualities and a national style caused many artists to reevaluate their artistic ideology and turn away from what some felt were the empty formulas of the West. Contemporary paintings within the modern idiom began to make conscious use of traditional Japanese art forms, devices, and ideologies. A number of ''mono-ha'' artists turned to painting to recapture traditional nuances in spatial arrangements, color harmonies, and lyricism. In 1933, Hassell joined the Nazi Party. He was very much against the Anti-Comintern Pact concluded by Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and the Empire of Japan in 1937, and favoured instead Western-Christian unity in Europe (he was, in fact, a member of the Order of Saint John (Order of Saint John (Bailiwick of Brandenburg)), a German Protestant noblemen's association, to which he had been admitted as a Knight of Honor in 1925 and in which he had been promoted to Knight of Justice in 1933 Robert M. Clark, Jr., ''The Evangelical Knights of Saint John''; Dallas, Texas: 2003; p. 45. ). In 1938, as a result of the Blomberg-Fritsch Affair, Hassell was recalled from his posting as ambassador in Rome by Adolf Hitler, without, however, being cast out of the diplomatic service. Then, soon after the German attack on Poland (Polish September Campaign) on 1 September 1939, Hassell led a delegation to allay north European governments' fears of a forthcoming German strike on their countries. No. 12 Squadron RAAF relocated from Parap Airfield, Northern Territory in April 1941 to ''RAAF Station Darwin''. The base hosted a large number of RAAF and United States Army Air Force units during World War II. The base was bombed by Japanese forces (Empire of Japan) many times, beginning with two major air raids (Air raids on Darwin, February 19, 1942) on 19 February 1942. Early years Meschery was born as Tomislav Nikolayevich Meshcheryakov in Harbin, China (Republic of China). His parents were Russian emigrants (Ethnic Russians in China) who fled from the October Revolution in 1917. The Meschery family was later relocated to a Japan (Empire of Japan)ese internment camp near Tokyo during World War II. After the war, Meschery and his parents emigrated to the United States. It was also in this phase of his life where his father renamed the family "Meschery" due to the anti-Communist anti-Soviet Red Scare under Joseph McCarthy, and Tomislav Nikolayevich was renamed Thomas Nicholas, which later was abbreviated to Tom. Living in San Francisco, California, Meschery attended Lowell High School (Lowell High School (San Francisco)). After graduating in 1957, he went to Saint Mary's College of California in Moraga (Moraga, California), receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1961. In 1973 Meschery was inducted into the St Mary's Hall of Fame and his basketball jersey hangs in McKeon Pavilion on campus. Early life Huang was born in Shanhua, Tainan in Taiwan, Empire of Japan in 1936. He graduated in National Taiwan University, and Lee Teng-hui, the later President of Taiwan, was once his instructor during that time. He received his PhD in agriculture in Cornell University, U.S., in 1971. He used to be a professor in National Taiwan University after he went back to Taiwan. Three-sided wars are rather rare. In the later stages of World War II in Eastern Europe there were several three-sided struggles between Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, and some third parties caught in the middle, for example the Polish Armia Krajowa and the anti-communist Russian Liberation Army. In Yugoslavia there was fighting between the Chetniks, Partisans (Partisans (Yugoslavia)) and Nazi Germany (though maybe not at the same time?). In China there was a 3-sided war in the 1940s between the Kuomingtang, the Communist Party of China and the Empire of Japan.

Imperial Japan's rapid industrialization and militarization under the slogan for sources used.)

After several large-scale military successes during the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937–1945) and the Pacific War, the Empire of Japan also gained notoriety for its war crimes (War crimes and Japan) against the peoples of the countries it conquered. After suffering many defeats and the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, however, the Empire of Japan surrendered to the Allies (Allies of World War II) on September 2, 1945. A period of occupation (Occupation of Japan) by the Allies followed the surrender, and a new constitution (Constitution of Japan) was created with American involvement. The constitution came into force on May 3, 1947, officially dissolving the Empire. American occupation and Japan's reconstruction of the country continued well into the 1950s, eventually forming the current (Postwar Japan) nation-state whose full title is the "State of Japan" ('''Nippon-koku''') simply rendered "Japan" in English.

The Emperors (Emperor of Japan) during this time, which spanned the entire Meiji (Meiji period) and Taishō (Taishō period), and the lesser part of the Shōwa (Shōwa period) eras, are now known in Japan by their posthumous names, which coincide with those era names: Emperor Meiji (Mutsuhito), Emperor Taishō (Yoshihito), and Emperor Shōwa (Hirohito).
