Imperial Japanese Army and Navy Uniforms & Equipment Vol.2

Finally a new book on Japanese WW2 Uniforms and Equipment! “Imperial Japanese Army and Navy Uniforms & Equipment Vol.2” (大日本帝国陸海軍〈2〉―軍装と装備 明治・大正・昭和) is the second book in the series and a great companion the first volume. The Author Tadao Nakata is the head of the company making the well known Nakata reproductions. Quality of the photos is definitely an improvement over the first book, they are much clearer and detailed. Still many are a bit small. Nonetheless a LOT of fantastic and interesting items are shown, uniforms, flags, SNLF gear, Paratrooper equipment, medals  and much much more. I find the last ditch  “Goods under the shortage of materials” gear especially interesting. There are many rare and nice original photographs in the book as well. Sadly there is no English language insert page like in the first volume. “Imperial Japanese Army and Navy Uniforms & Equipment Vol.2” is a must have  for anyone interested in Japanese uniforms and equipment of World War 2.

Imperial Japanese Army and Navy Uniforms & Equipment 2, 391 pages, hardcover, ISBN: 978-4-87180-021-1
