  • Imperial Japanese Navy Heavy Cruisers 1941-45by Mark Stille

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2012; US$ 13.95

    Designed with little more than a passing nod to the international naval treaties of the inter-war period, the Imperial Japanese Navy's heavy cruisers were fast and heavily armed.

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2012; US$ 13.95

    The prolonged and bloody fighting for control of the Japanese occupied Pacific islands in World War II is a key point in 20th-century warfare.

This book details the... more...

  • Ki-43 'Oscar' Aces of World War 2by Hiroshi Ichimura

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2012; US$ 15.95

    Dubbed the 'Oscar' by the Allies, the Ki-43 Hayabusa Peregrine was the most prolific Japanese fighter of World War 2. Designed for manoeuverability and speed, the low-wing model meant that firepower and safety had to be sacrificed, with only two machine guns per plane. Despite this, more Japanese pilots achieved Ace status flying the Hayabusa than... more...
