An excellent and in-depth history of the Japanese Army. ( )

2508 Soldiers of the Sun: The Rise and Fall of the Imperial Japanese Army, by Meirion and Susie Harries (read 27 May 1993) This is a history of the Imperial Japanese Army, and is quite a good book, telling of events that (some of them) were not familiar to me. Inter alia, the book tells of the little-known Russian-Japanese conflict of 1939 and of the battle of Nomonhan--which was a Russian victory. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0679753036, Paperback)

Soldiers of the Sun traces the origins of the Imperial Japanese Army back to its samurai roots in the nineteenth century to tell the story of the rise and fall of this extraordinary military force.

Meirion and Susie Harries have written the first full Western account of the Imperial Japanese Army. Drawing on Japanese, English, French, and American sources, the authors penetrate the lingering wartime enmity and propaganda to lay bare the true character of the Imperial Army.
