About the movie:

This brand new Hearts of Iron III movie depicts the strategic problems Japan faced during the Second World War. Long supply lines stretching over the Pacific Ocean were vulnerable to hostile navies, but were needed to transport resources back to the Home Islands in order to fuel the war effort in China. This called for a large and powerful navy, and an inevitable conflict with the United States.
