UNIFORMS, EQUIPMENT & PERSONAL ITEMS OF THE JAPANESE INFANTRYMAN, 1939-1945.

''HEITAI'' is a stunning visual history of the Japanese soldier, providing a unique insight into how they lived, ate, maintened themselves at the front and how they behaved when out of the line. Through the medium of the author's unique collection of personal items and artefacts that they left behind, we discover what the misguided, yet courageous Japanese infantryman did in his spare time, his ambitions and worries and also how he spent his all too infrequent leave.
