Japanese Militaria
Reference Material


Reference Books

Reference books on Japanese Militaria have generally been scarce over the years when compared to the available texts on Militaria of the other Axis powers. In recent years a number of suitable works have been published covering a wide range of Imperial Japanese Militaria and most are still available new or second hand in some cases.
Reference books are listed with Title, Author, ISBN, estimated price and how they are referred to generally on this site, in casual conversation, or in print. Some are out of print but various editions are available from time to time at online booksellers like Amazon or Barnes and Noble or Ebay and various other sites on the web. These books are listed in no particular order, comments on each will be added later.
