"Eizo Hori, 堀栄三, (October 16, 1913 – June 5, 1995) was a colonel and a line-duty general staff officer in the “Counter-US Planning Division” of the Imperial Japanese Army who after the war also became a general in the Japanese Ground Self-defense Force and headed the intelligence division of the branch during the Cold War. Hori is credited with his effective strategy planning in the defense of Peleliu Island, Iwo Jima(in Japanese pronounced Iwo To) and Okinawa Campaigns, implementing an effective theory of “How to neutralize massive American bombardment”. His simple strategy was conceptualized around the amount of irons put in the combat zone. His observations were based on the analysis he made from the Second Shanghai Incident in 1937 and his theory was correctly proven by the utter defeat of the Battle of Kwajalein which didn’t even last more than 3 days. During the the Battle of Kwajalein, his intelligence team gathered information from the radio interception as well as the Radio of San Francisco and concluded that the US is likely to invade with 5-6x size of the Japanese troops and puts in 1 tonnage of irons every 40-45 square meters before they make invasions.

In order to neutralize serious US bombardment with an inferior Japanese fire powers, his strategy focused and advised the local troops to
1)build the ant-nest like under-ground defense lines with the concretes
2)avoid fighting on the beach defense line rather wait and have the opponents in-land
3)focus on shooting the infantry men rather than mechanized weapons
4)never do Banzai attacks"

Phone rings

MacArthur's steward: Hello, General MacArthur's residence
General Homma, voice disguised: Prease to speak with Generah MacArthah.
MacArthur's steward: One moment please.

A few seconds pass. The steward can be heard handing off the phone. A gruff baritone voice speaks into the receiver.

General Douglass MacArthur: Hello?
General Homma, voice disguised: Is-ah your re-fridge-ah-a-tah running? If-ah so, you should stop it! HAI!

Hangs up.

It would have been better to come up with a plan to defeat an invasion.

Fairly typical post war face saving, a read through the "Japanese monographs" leaves you wondering how they were beaten.
