The Kido Butai (also known as the Carrier Striking Task Force) set sail from Hittokapu Bay, Japan under Vice Admiral Chuichi Nagumo on 26 November 1941 at full speed to a rendezvous point 200 nautical miles north of the island of Oahu, where the US Navy's Pacific Fleet rode at anchor.
The Japanese needed the resources of Southeast Asia to continue their war with China that began on July 7, 1937 at the Marco Polo Bridge outside of Bejing. The Kuantung Army attacked the Chinese and this time the Chinese fought back.
Three entities stood in their way: the US Army Air Corp in the Philippines, the Royal Navy's Force Z at Singapore, and the US Navy at Pearl Harbor.
