(p.251) Conclusion
The Currents of War

Sidney Pash

University Press of Kentucky

The conclusion focuses on the days immediately preceding the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the actions of American leaders in the final days of peace, and their reactions to the Japanese attack. The conclusion maintains that containment had succeeded and that, had Washington accepted either Japanese peace plan or forwarded its own modus vivendi, it would have averted war with Japan. The conclusion also considers the long-term effects of the war, both on Japan and on the Far East, and argues forcefully that the wars in Korea and Vietnam might have been avoided if the United States had supported a moderate containment policy, instead of rollback.
