Japanese Imperialism

Since Japan is an archipelago, it has few natural resources.  In order for it to industrialize and remain free of Western influence it would need to find some. 

The Japanese took over much of East Asia.  Leaders of conquered countries were installed in puppet governments that were manipulated by the Japanese (the last emperor of China became the leader of a new Manchurian country called Manchukuo). 

By 1942, most of eastern Asia was under Japanís control.
