The Great Betrayal: was Pearl Harbor a set-up by the British?
Most historians of the period agree that 1941 saw Britain exhausted and on its knees. Most of Europe had capitulated or fallen, and badly mauled British and Empire troops and a handful of others were desperately trying to stave off the inevitable.
Then the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. What Churchill had been praying for happened: the United States of America was in the War!!!
But now we learn the Japanese had spies and sympathisers at the heart of Britain's war planning. And before the war, British personnel had actually been at the Pearl Harbor base.
Could it be that Britain actually facilitated the Japanese attack that altered the otherwise certain outcome of WWII?
Evidence can still be viewed online:
This landmark film by Paul Elston tells the incredible story of how it was the British who gave the Japanese the knowhow to take out Pearl Harbor and capture Singapore. For 19 years before the fall of Singapore to the Japanese, British officers were spying for Japan. Worse still, the Japanese had infiltrated the very heart of the British establishment - through a mole who was a peer of the realm known to Churchill himself.
