Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This unique account of the Second World War contains extraordinary, previously unpublished colour photographs documenting Japan's rise and fall: from its forced entrance onto the world stage in 1854, through its first imperial adventures in China and its sudden attack on the United States and British Forces in 1941, to its catastrophic defeat in 1945. Fifth in the acclaimed series, Japan's War in Colour follows the enormous success of Britain at War, America at War, Germany at War and The British Empire.Kamikaze pilots, the young Emperor Hirohito on a state visit to England, the attack on Pearl Harbor, Japanese suicide bombers, propaganda posters from the occupation of China, troops praying for victory, and allied prisoners of war at work are just some of the images in this fascinating portrait of the Japanese nation fighting at first for expansion, then for survival.

Includes index.
