RAYS OF THE RISING SUN: Armed Forces of Japan's Asian Allies 1931-45 Volume 1: China and Manchukuo
First of a three-volume series, this details the story of the Chinese who fought for the Japanese over a 14 year period. Details how the Japanese created puppet governments in occupied Chinese territories, and in turn, those puppet governments needed their own independent armed forces to help them maintain control over the populace. The Chinese soldiers in these armies ranged from the well-drilled and trained regular Army of the Last Emperor of China, Pu Yi, to the irregular Mongol cavalry who served alongside Japanese troops in the 'secret war' waged in the Mongolian hinterlands - regardless, they were hailed as traitors and embarrassments to the Chinese fighting the Japanese.

Describes in detail the organization, training, actions, uniforms and equipment of these forces, including detailed orders-of-battle; contains many rare and previously unpublished photos; and contains color plates that illustrate the uniforms and insignia of the armies. The air forces and navies of these states are also described in detail, including color aircraft profiles, as well as biographies of notable military commanders. Contains 88 black and white photos, 4 black and white figures, 16 color figures, 11 color aircraft profiles, and 10 tables.1 vol, 148 pgs 2024 UK, HELION AND COMPANY
