Japanese Infantry Arms in World War II

Another great book by Ritta Nakanishi (the other one being Japanese Military Uniforms 1930~1945) who did all text and illustrations. Again almost no original photos but excellent illustrations, this time detailing most of the infantry arms used by the Japanese during WW2. Small arms, grenade launchers, anti-tank weapons, machine guns and more! It even shows how machine gun positions were set up and how automatic gun squads positioned themselves in the field. The book feels like a wartime Japanese field manual coming to live. A must have guide!
