|Japanese Infantry Arms
In World War II
This lavishly illustrated book was written and illustrated by Ritta Nakanishi, a spectacular artist. In this book, he strives to bring to life wartime Japanese Army manuals, with color drawings of the weapons and tactics of the Japanese Army.
Every page of the book is a work of art in its own right. Each chapter is dedicated to the usage of the weapon, firing positions, tactics and accessories associated with it. Drawings and cutaways show everything from transport of the weapon and usage under different circumstances (under fire, etc) and different ammunition and tactics.
