The Japanese Army used tanks to great effect in the build-up to World War II. Inspired by European designs, in the 1920s and 1930s an innovative Japanese tank program facilitated their campaigns in China prior to the Pacific War. During the ensuing war against the Allies tanks were deployed imaginatively in jungle terrain previously thought impassable by such vehicles, being integral in Malaya and the capture of Singapore. Steven J Zaloga uses detailed and colorful artwork and photographs to explore these designs, explaining their neglect in favor of the naval priorities that left Japanese tanks outmoded by Western designs.

The Japanese army made extensive use of its tanks in the campaigns in China in the 1930s, and it was in these early successes that the Japanese began to develop their own unique style of tank tactics. From the steam-rolling success of the Japanese as they invaded Manchuria until the eventual Japanese defeat, Rottman provides a battle history of the Japanese tank units as they faced the Chinese, the Russians, the British and the Americans.

The Covenanter (which never saw active service) and Crusader Cruiser tanks were developed between 1939 and 1940. The Crusader first saw action in the North African desert in June 1941: its speed and sleek design made it a hard target to hit, and the tank was well-respected by the Afrikakorps for its velocity in combat. But its hurried development prior to World War II also made it prone to mechanical failure. This book examines the Covenanter and the many variants of the Crusader tank, detailing the designs, developments and disappointments of these infamous World War II tanks.

The redoubtable Japanese Imperial Army grew from 1.5 million men in 1939 to 5.5 million by the end of the war. This book recounts their highly successful campaigns in the Far East and Pacific theaters at the beginning of WW II, which were every bit as spectacular as those of the Germans in Europe, and how their troops earned an erasable reputation as expert jungle fighters. The book also describes their code of honor which made them extremely cruel enemies to prisoners and civilians alike, while their Kamikaze suicidal tendencies meant they would automatically fight to the last without any thought of surrender.

Fighting for MacArthur is the only book that focuses on the role of the Navy and Marine Corps during the 1941-42 defense of the Philippines. The book includes the most detailed account ever published of the Japanese bombing of the Cavite Navy Yard outside Manila on 10 December 1941, the worst destruction ever to US Navy installation. The book also provides many new details about the 4th Marine Regiment that surrendered on Corregidor in May 1942, the only time the Marine Corps lost a regiment in combat. Fighting for MacArthur includes important insights on the origins of the difficult relationship between Army General Douglas MacArthur and the Navy and also compares MacArthur’s actions in the defense of the Philippines to those of Admiral Thomas Hart, the Commander of the Asiatic Fleet.

The only complete history of U.S. armed forces from the advent of the tank in battle during World War I to the campaign to drive Iraq out of Kuwait in 1991, Camp Colt to Desert Storm traces the development of doctrine for operations at the tactical and operational levels of war and translates this fighting doctrine into the development of equipment.
