Billy Mitchell: Predictor of Pearl Harbor

(December 29, 1879 – February 19, 1936)

Billy Mitchell was a US Army General who is often given credit for starting the US Air Force.

Most people don’t know it, but he predicted the air attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese in a 324-page report in 1924. He failed to predict the strikes from aircraft carriers, though, and thought that the planes would be dispatched from islands in the Pacific.

ビリー・ミッチェル:真珠湾攻撃の予言者

ビリー・ミッチェル(18791229日~1936219日)は米陸軍の大将で米国の空軍の父として覚えられている。

一般的に知られていないのは彼が1924(大正13年)発行の324ページ報告書で日本の真珠湾攻撃を予測した。彼は太平洋の島からの戦闘機攻撃を想像していた。空母からの攻撃までは想像しなかった。
