In the past 24 hours I've had scores of requests for a citation for the quote that goes, "We have woken a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve."
As noted elsewhere on this board, nobody can provide a source for this quote prior to the release of the movie "Tora, Tora, Tora."
It's a great punchline for the movie, and I believe it to be true then, and true today, but it's not historically accurate to attribute it to Isoruku Yamamoto.
I wanted to get this to the top of the board to head off a few emails and phonecalls. It's good to note that the hits on the PHHA site jumped from 5,000/day on the 10th to 16,000/day on the 11th.
