In the 1930s, without warning, Imperial Japan attacked China and the rest of Asia with a rampage of destruction and atrocities, the effects of which linger today. Only a few years later in the 1940s, Japan launched the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor, which propelled a reluctant United States into World War II.
