Another game-related topics for your thoughts.

"Worse, the IJN fleet was cursed to be led by Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto—a leader of such stature and mystique that subordinates deferred to him out of habit. Never mind whether his ideas concerning operations and strategy made sense."

"The result of Japanese seafarers’ deference prior to Midway: the needless loss of the Kidō Butai, the IJN’s aircraft-carrier fleet and main striking arm. Worse from Tokyo’s standpoint, Midway halted the Japanese Empire’s till-then unbroken string of naval victories."

"An institution unable or unwilling to entertain second thoughts about its assumptions or reasoning is an institution that has set itself up for failure. So it was for the Imperial Japanese Navy at the Battle of Midway. So it could be for today’s U.S. Navy, or any other institution."

Yes I basically agree with him.  The culture at that time didn't encourage junior ranks to speak out. Was basically follow the leader mentality. Japan is still that way today but to a lesser extent.
