World War II Jungle Warfare Tactics Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Steve Noon

Part of the Elite series

Description

Suffocating heat, tropical rain and hostile jungle terrain were but a few of the treacherous obstacles that confronted the Allies when they fought against the Imperial Japanese Army in the Southeast Asian rainforest.

Aided by the knowledge of the terrain, the Japanese were consistently successful in their advances during the winter of 1941-42.

However, once the Allies realised that unconventional means and specific jungle skills would be needed in order to survive and win, they developed effective units able to fight the Japanese in this hostile environment.

Providing an expert analysis of tactical warfare, this book explains the early successes of the Japanese and highlights how the Allies overcame many physical and psychological impairments, to master the art of jungle warfare and finally conquer the strange and claustrophobic jungle environment.
