Incorrect! They were not. I will be addressing these issues later today but that is not an explanation, only a bias from the western way of reading History.

He should go down as one of the greatest admirals but his side lost and he ran afoul of some P38s sent to kill him. He was not assisinated as some people assert, he was killed in action taking the same risks as any serving soldier. Maybe the special effort of the U.S. to do away with him confirms his status as a great admiral.

The Aleutians as a part of Midway hypothesis has been called to question recently I believe. Again if you haven't read it yet I strongly recommend Shattered Sword.
