Japan's bombing of Pearl Harbour was the result of the battle between Japan and America for influence in the East.The Japanese industrialised early in the Twentieth Century but with no supply of natural resources, they embarked on a strategy of territorial expansionism and sought to stamp their mark on the region. The Americans and British were not happy about this and wanted to protect their own colonial interests in the region. The Americans put an embargo on trade with Japan. The Japanese choice was to give in to American wishes or launch a war against the USA.
