Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Although much is published on American and German uniforms and equipment, there are far fewer titles related to those of the Japanese written in English. Gary Nila's new book will be a title be a worthwhile addition to the bookshelf of historians, collectors and those interested in Japanese forces... The book begins with a helpful references to Japanese numbering systems, kanji and other manufacturer related markings. Clearly and concisely written, with many photographs of each piece of equipment, patch and uniform used by the Imperial Navy. The book traces the influences of naval equipment, from early gear used during the war in China thru WWII. Every detail of each uniform - from headgear down to boots is covered. Like other Osprey titles, the book is amply illustrated with wartime photos, and detailed photos of uniforms and equipment from collections. This book is a worthy reference and historical text, that anyone interested in this topic will want to add to their library." -www.pacificwrecks.com

"I would give it the highest recommendation for anyone interested in WW2 Japanese subjects and it is an essential addition to the modelling references if you are contemplating a diorama or vignette. The low price is perfect and the easy-to-read format make this spot on as a reference for the workbench." -Rowan Baylis, AeroScale
