The rise of which new naval power—Japan or the United States—most surprised or concerned the established European powers at the turn of the 20th century?

    With Japan now the dominant naval power in the North Pacifice, it could limpose its will on China without worrying too much about European or American naval power in the Pacific.

    Furthermore the newly formed Commonwealth of Australia embarked on a modest programme of obtaining warships from United Kingdom for local defence.

    Though I don’t know how effective a few Australian desroyers would be against the might of Japanese battleships and cruisers.

    Have a life. you guys!!!!
