    really nice intelligence report on Japanese tactics during WW2.

    Website also has many other interesting reads as well.



    GENERAL HEADQUARTERS, INDIA

    MILITARY INTELLIGENCE DIRECTORATE 4/G.S.I. (t) MAY 1943

    THIS DOCUMENT MUST NOT FALL INTO ENEMY HANDS

    FOREWORD.

    The Japanese are an island race who have mastered the art of war, not through any mysterious or indefinable quality inherited from their Emperor, their islands, or their ancestors during your grandfather's time they were still in the bow-and-arrow stage—but through serious study of ancient and modern methods, and by intensive training. If we analyse their tactics, reducing them to fundamentals, all that they practise is to be found in our own training manuals, or in the military histories of ancient campaigns ; not even the snipers in the trees are new— the jungle tribes of Africa and Brazil have employed them since time immemorial.

    In their long history the peoples of our Empire have shown the world that they possess more than an average share of courage and tenacity, and today we must add to these advantages our undoubted superiority in arms and equipment. Any success which the Japanese have had against us was due to intensive training, carefully rehearsed plans and normal guts. Whatever the task in hand—be it the digging of a single fox-hole or the preparation of a large-scale invasion—their work is done with meticulous care, and by intensive and sustained training alone can we hope to outmanoeuvre them.

    This pamphlet is largely the work of soldiers and airmen fighting in Burma and the South West Pacific who, in notes, sketches and photographs, have recorded their observations of the Japanese in Battle.

    Special acknowledgement is due to the American Marine Liaison Officer of the Pacific Ocean Areas whose appreciation of Japanese characteristics and methods has been quoted in Chapter I, Section 2. Acknowledgement is also due to our Allies for the drawings reproduced as Examples 13 and 15 in Section 4 of the Chapter on Defence.

    Part II, which is devoted to the important subject of counter measures, is being prepared by the Military Training Directorate, G.H.Q., India Command.

    Nope, currently the "Just for laughs" thread holds that distinction...

    This thread will one day overtake it, seeing as it is pretty much just random spam posting.

    "Space Battleship Yamato" was a hugely successful 1970s anime series.
    It was remade in 2012 as "Space Battleship Yamato 2199" and as a live action film "Space Battleship Yamato" in 2010. ;)
