"Whose Purpose Was To Lure "purpose was to lure US Navy into a battle that the Japanese hoped would allow them to destroy the American carriers allowing Japan to control the Pacific Ocean and solidify its hold n its conuests with the hope that the US would sue for peaceRochefort was uniuely ualified because he was expert in Cryptanalysis radio communications and the Japanese language the Discourse on Voluntary Servitude.
