Hi

What is the full name of Col. Hirata, as I can`t find it anywhere?

Refere to Hirata - was he obliged to execute orders that Itagaki was giving to him in the night of 18. september?

Hirata testimony during Trial in Tokyo says that Itagaki had no competence to give orders to him, and so did he. But in the book: Richard Storry "Collected writings of Richard Storry", author make a thesis that Itagaki as a "Senior Staff Oficer to the Commander in Chief was able to give orders to regimental commander in Mukden col. Hirata"

So how this was in reality?


edit

I would like to ask one more question. In the book by Takehiko Yoshihashi "Conspiracy at Mukden...", author tells us about gen. Honjo`s request to Navy which included sending Second Overseas Fleet from Port Arthur to Yingkow as to close the path of escape of "Young Marshall`s" troops. About the same thing tells us Alvin C. Coox in his "Nomonhan", but he stated that Honjo`s request haven`t been fulfiled by Navy.

So once again I would like to ask how this was in reality? :)

As to the 2nd example I think it was possible, that Navy rejected sending part of fleet to help Kwantung Army. Whole Manchurian Incident was a "plus" to Army, so it was possible that Navy wasn`t eager to take part in it.
But maybe there are some examples of Navy`s participation in conquering Manchuria?
