Within months of its greatest triumph in 1942, the Japanese Imperial Army
began to face the difficulties which would eventually destroy it - overstretched
supply lines, and inadequate industrial support. Yet as the Allies grew steadily
stronger and more skilful, the Japanese Army and Naval Landing Forces dug in to
defend their conquests with a determination which shocked all who fought them.
In this second book the author describes the deployments, organisation, uniforms
and equipment of the Army - including the dreaded Kempei-tai military police -
the naval infantry, paratroopers, special raiding units, and foreign auxiliaries
during the long and savage war in Burma and the Pacific. His text is illustrated
with many rare photographs, three insignia charts, and eight highly detailed
colour plates. Contents: Uniforms of Imperial Army occupation forces in Asia,
1942-1945 * Naval Landing Forces * Air Force Paratroops *
Guadalcanal 1942-1943 * The China-Burma-India front 1944 * Pacific
island defence forces 1943-1945 * Defence forces in the Home Islands 1945 *
Colour plates by Stephen Andrew.
