Abstract

After the outbreak of the First World War in July 1914, Japan justified its declaration of war on Germany in August on the grounds that it was a member of the Anglo-Japanese alliance. By November 1914 Japan had captured China’s Shandong peninsula and the islands in the West Pacific that the Germans had either leased or annexed. Generally speaking, these military battles with Germany are what come to mind in connection with Japan’s direct involvement in the Great War.
