This is one of those books that you expect to be something, and it turns out to be something else entirely. The authors have collected a series of oral histories from Japanese participants in the Second World War who fought in Burma, and this book is an edited collection of these histories. This seems a rather obscure subject, but almost all of the armies that the Allies fought against during World War II were annihilated, to the point of just a few survivors. The Japanese army in Burma, though suffering horrific casualties, did have a significant number of survivors. As a result, they'd be where you can *find* a large group of survivors, and get a collection of oral histories such as this. There are, however, cultural considerations here, and they pretty much cripple the book.

The result is a collection of stories, none of them particularly illuminating. Japan has changed a great deal since World War II, and doesn't like to talk about the atrocities committed by its troops during the war. Rather than blame "others" as Germans typically did, with East Germans insisting West Germans committed all the war crimes, and vice versa, the Japanese just don't discuss it much at all, and do their best to sweep whatever they do acknowledge happened under the rug. The result is a series of accounts of the war that have little relationship to the accounts we have from the British/Allied side. The Japanese commit no atrocities (seriously, none) and on several occasions the Japanese salute particularly brave British soldiers. The whole thing winds up looking more chivalrous and honorable than a medieval joust. There's no animosity and no hatred for the enemy, not even a little bit.

I thought the whole thing a bit much, but some of the stories individually are interesting. You get an idea of how class-oriented the Japanese military was, and how poorly the higher-level officers treated the lower-level ones, and the enlisted men.

There isn't much written about ww2 by Japanese ground pounders that's been translated into English. This book gives wonderful insight into what the IJN soldiers who fought in Burma thought about themselves,their fears, hardships, deprivations, struggles. They were sent to fight there even though the high command new it would be difficult to supply them. Their spirit was to see them through. They suffered from food & weapons shortages, disease, starvation, basic neglect. But were expected to keep fighting. Some of these accounts are so shocking I was stunned. If these things ( soldiers attacking without ammo or weapons ) & other abuses were done by American commanders the public would want them removed. One of the things I noticed was great scarcasm on the behalf of some of the writers towards their superiors. Guess that happens in any army. Some of what I've read has left me shocked to the point where it's difficult to describe in words. Read it & come to you're own conclusions.

If its' written by a Japanese soldier, I recommend it

For those interested in World War II history this is an excellent book telling the stories of those who fought against the US from the ranks. The similarities of soldiers on all sides is evident in these stories regardless of what side your sympathies lie. It broadens one's perspective of not just history but all warfare.
Garr
Very good book about the Burma campaign from the Japanese side. Many short stories from different soldiers and officers, instead of concentrating on one character.
Tat
Item as advertised and delivery very prompt.
