Another example of the usual good work done by Gordon Rottman for Osprey, in which he examines how an army that had generally disdained going on even the tactical defensive successfully improvised tough field fortifications, even though laboring under weak doctrine and severe limitations of resources; not that this saved the Japanese in the wider scheme of things.
