Botley, Oxford, United Kingdom: Osprey Publishing, Limited, 2002. New book, 48 pages, MAA369. Within months of its greatest triumph in 1942, the Japanese Imperial Army began to face the difficulties which would eventually destroy it - overstretched supply lines, and inadequate industrial support. Yet as the Allies grew steadily stronger and more skilful, the Japanese Army and Naval Landing Forces dug in to defend their conquests with a determination which shocked all who fought them. In this second book the author describes the deployments, organisation, uniforms and equipment of the Army - including the dreaded Kempei-tai military police - the naval infantry, paratroopers, special raiding units, and foreign auxiliaries during the long and savage war in Burma and the Pacific. His text is illustrated with many rare photographs, three insignia charts, and eight highly detailed colour plates. Covers: Uniforms of Imperial Army occupation forces in Asia, 1942-45, Naval Landing Forces, Air Force Paratroops, Guadalcanal 1942-43, The China-Burma-India front 1944, Pacific island defence forces 1943-45, Defence forces in the Home Islands 1945..

From Booklist: "Compared to the Japanese, the Germans tended to treat American POWs well. There were many dishonorable exceptions, however, and Swedberg tells the tale, based on survivors' accounts, of one of them. Work Commando 311/I was a forced-labor detachment into which were incorporated several hundred American paratroopers captured in Normandy and the Netherlands. These men faced all the dangers the regular POW did plus Gestapo brutality and forced labor. They were in danger from both foe and friend (from Allied air attacks in particular) right up to the moment survivors were liberated by the Red Army. Swedberg makes these prisoners' story a plain tale plainly told, letting the nature of what happened to them give the account vividness and emotional impact. A useful addition to the literature on the American POW experience in World War II. " ; Ex-Library; 204 pages ., Stackpole Books, 1995
