Do any of you know if Yamamoto agreed philosophically or morally with the Japanese colonial agenda? I don't generally read biographys (boring!) and the books I've read focus on practical issues.

I don't think he was concerned much with morals. He opposed creating a big colonial empire only because he felt that it was sure to lead to war with the United States--a war he didn't think Japan could win. If the empire could be created without war with the US, he probably had no objections on morale grounds.

He pretty clearly didn't object to a surprise attack before a declaration of war.
