Re: McMullen Part V
Going out on a limb; unlikely Navy would have lobbied against invasion in 1945-46. Couple of reasons. Mc Arthur leading Allies, the early preparations for troops from Europe to enter the Pacific, Air Force's fire bomb campaign against Japanese cities in 1945 to burn Japan to ground and the general attitudes of US towards Japan in 45 because of Pearl Harbor history in 41. Despite estimates of 46, that some 6 million troops needed to invade and casualties expected for US.
