In minute detail this book dissects the Japanese Army that defeated the British Empire in the Far East, pushing those forces out of long held positions and, finally, Singapore ; an army that would almost reach India, that withstood the might of the American Pacific forces until two atom bombs made it surrender. Going back to Japanese manuals the author has produced a carefully constructed reference on the Japanese tactics, organisation, machines, morale and men themselves.
