Letters to David Irving on this Website







Unless correspondents ask us not to, this Website will post selected letters that it receives, and invite open debate.

Bruce Cowie, of Victoria, Australia, asks on Tuesday, August 24, 2004 if Japanese steamers were ordered home before Pearl Harbor



Japanese steamers berthed before Pearl Harbor


Have you ever in your research heard anything of this:

"David Howarth in his history of the P&O line mentioned that British intelligence intercepted a recall of all Japanese merchant vessels in late 1941. Plotting their locations and time to steam to Japan, they figured everyone would be home by December 6. This would make them safe from US/British/Dutch action following a Japanese attack after December 6. Of course, this analysis could not predict the location of the attack, only the earliest date."

It seems a bit far fetched to me.

David Irving responds:

YES, I heard something similar, and it is the kind of Intelligence which rings very true, and is hard to conceal from enemy Intelligence networks.
