    Isoroku means 56 in Japanese, the age of his father at his birth
    U.S. had cracked Japanese code, finding out which plane Admiral Yamamoto would be on, when FDR gave the order to shoot him down (1943)
    He sneak attacked Pearl Harbor without provocation.
    This forced the U.S. into World War II and eventually caused the downfall of the Japanese Empire.
    Many Americans continue to hold a grudge against the Japanese.
    After his attack, many Americans created slang terms like 'to be japped' and 'to be Pearl Harbored,' meaning to be attacked from behind.
    He spent two years attending Harvard University.
    He was loyal to his Japanese government.
    Even though he opposed and warned against bringing the U.S. into World War II, he set the strategy for the Pearl Harbor attack (1941).
    He accurately predicted: 'In the first six to twelve months of a war with the United States and Great Britain, I will run wild and win victory upon victory. But then, if the war continues after that, I have no expectation of success.' (1940).
