Summary: Listing of high ranking Japanese army and naval officers
Comment: This proves to be an useful reference book as it listed over 1,000 names of high ranking Japanese Army and Naval officers, mostly generals and admirals. Each name got a short biographical or career notes attached next to them. However, not all names were not treated equal. The more famous or important names got a longer biographical/career notes while the lesser names only have one or two sentences after them. A good example would be that Admiral Yamamoto, who planned the Pearl Harbor attack got nearly three pages of biographical/career note while Lt. General Reizo Kato got only one short sentence telling us that he commanded the 28th Division in Manchuria from Oct. 1943. Poor General Kato, if it wasn't for this book, he would be forgotten completely by American historians!!!
An reference book that make it an interesting thumb reading material. The coverage isn't as complete as you might hope but there isn't too many books I know in the English language that got information like this between the two covers.
