The Japanese army remains surprisingly mysterious and many details of its organization and history are quite unknown. John Underwood has researched all the available in literature since 1945 on the organization and structure of the Japanese army during WWII and placed it in a series of three volumes. Aside from details on individual divisions, brigades, and other specialized formations, the series includes appendicies with weapons details and specialized Japanese terminology. This volume covers the infantry and depot divisions, giving a short history of each division’s history and general, overall organizational details.
