“HEITAI Uniforms, Equipment and Personal Items of the Japanese Soldier, 1931-1945” by Agustin Saiz.

There are so few reference books about Japanese WW2 militaria that any addition is more than welcome. The book by Agustin Saiz covers basically all Japanese Army gear and uniforms from WW2. From toothbrush to helmet. For me the highlight of the book is the personal items section, really nice! If you are already a hardcore collector you might not find a lot of new info and many subjects could have been covered in a lot more detail. (In case you know¬†Henry-Paul Enjames “G.I. Collector’s Guide” it is a bit similar in this regard to “Heitai” ). But I would still recommend it as a great basic reference work on the Japanese Army footsoldier of WW2.
