The Japanese Army : 1942-1945 Pt. 2 Paperback
Illustrated by Stephen Andrew
Part of the Men-at-Arms series
From December 1941 the Imperial Japanese Army shocked the world by its lightening victories over the US, British and Dutch forces in the Philippines, Malaya and the East Indies.
The Pacific War occupied much of the US war effort, from Pearl Harbor to Okinawa, but although the broad details of these campaigns are common knowledge, few detailed accounts of the Japanese uniforms and equipment are available.
This second volume in a two-book study describes and illustrates the developments in Japanese uniforms and equipment from the high point of conquest in 1942, through the long island and jungle campaigns of 1942-45.
Researched from Japanese sources, it also covers the last ditch forces raised in the Home Islands to resist the expected Allied invasion.
