Japanese Special Naval Landing Forces : Uniforms and Equipment 1937-45 Paperback

Part of the Men-at-Arms series


The spearhead of Japan's assault landing operations both in China pre-Pearl Harbor, and in US and British territory post-Pearl Harbor, was provided by the Special Naval Landing Forces - 12 numbered battalion-size Imperial Japanese Navy units.

They garrisoned a number of the islands which the US Marines then had to re-claim in some of the bloodiest battles of the Pacific War.

These included the infamous battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa.

This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the elite force which has be never before been examined in such detail in English, covering weapons and equipment as well as uniform and insignia.
