The Rise and Fall of Imperial Japan, 1894-1945 by Edited by S. L. Mayer (£16.00)Publisher: Bison Books — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0861241428]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges, short closed and tape-reinforced to the spine ends. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Reprint. [First: 1984 thus, previously published as ‘The Japanese War Machine’ in 1976] Maps to the endpapers. Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “In 1868, Japan emerged from feudalism and civil conflict as a comparatively undeveloped industrial state in an age of European imperialism in East Asia. Within a generation, Japan had risen to the ranks of the foremost industrial and military powers in the Western Pacific. A generation later, Japan had become the paramount power in East Asia, and her naval and air forces spread Japanese power across the Pacific. The formidable weapon built in the name of the Emperor swept across China and Manchuria; her air forces pummelled Pearl Harbor and Darwin; her armies marched to Singapore and the gates of India. Her navies seized some Aleutian islands and strafed the California coast. By 1942 the world had come to know the power of the most devastating force in the Pacific — the Japanese War Machine.

The force and power of the Japanese War Machine is told here by some of the world’s leading experts in guns, tanks, planes, and ships of World War II. The drama of Japan’s seizure of Manchuria, the take-over of the State by the Army, the invasion of China, the simultaneous attack on Malaya, Hawaii, the Philippines and the oil-rich Dutch East Indies is told in all the horror and shock the Japanese invader placed before Western eyes. The fall of Singapore and Hong Kong, the conquest of Burma and Indo-China took place within a hundred days. The flag of the Rising Sun ruled a maritime empire from the Russian border to the gates of Australia, from Burma to Midway.

But the strength of the Japanese War Machine depended on Japanese industrial power, which in the end, was no match for the United States and its Allies. The Japanese soldier, infused with the warrior code of Bushido fought hard and long in New Guinea’s jungles; as the struggle was brought closer to Japan’s home islands, the Japanese soldier fought on tenaciously in the Philippines and on Iwo Jima and Okinawa. The air forces began suicide missions, thekamikaze, which drove into Allied aircraft, heroically and fanatically.. .but all too little, too late. The nuclear holocaust, which ended World War II, left a ruined Japan and a wrecked Japanese War Machine.

THE RISE AND FALL OF IMPERIAL JAPAN is the tragic and noble history of a gallant people led into a misguided war. The millions who suffered in Asia and the Pacific in the wake of the Japanese War Machine bear silent tribute to its folly.”

[ISBN: 0297846442]Condition: Near Fine — in Near Fine Dustwrapper.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Following the great success of the best-selling Forgotten Voices of the Great War, Max Arthur has found and interviewed the last twenty-one British veterans of the conflict. The oldest of these men is 109, the youngest 104. In their own words they describe the extraordinary changes that have occurred during their lifetimes. Born in the reign of Queen Victoria, all have lived as adults through the Depression, the Second World War and the Millennium. But for these men, the Great War was the defining period of their lives. Some of them, mere boys at the outbreak, lied about their ages to join up. They saw action in the trenches, at sea and in the fledgling air services.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Return to the Philippines by Rafael Steinberg (£10.50)Publisher: Time Life — 1980Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 0809425165]Condition: Very Good.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “On January 2, 1942, less than a month after invading the Philippine Islands, triumphant Japanese forces occupied the capital city of Manila. The Japanese take-over ushered in a perplexing and paradoxical period for both the victor and the vanquished.

The Japanese authorities earnestly sought to enlist the cooperation of the Filipinos; a friendly populace would permit them to reap the benefits of their conquest without tying up troops needed elsewhere. They launched a showy program designed to transfer the Filipinos’ loyalty from the United States to Japan. In their propaganda, the Japanese linked themselves to the Filipinos as Oriental peoples with a common enemy — the arrogant, white-skinned American exploiters. They made glowing promises; the best was a pledge to give the Philippines complete national independence three years before the U.S. had planned to do so.

The Filipinos distrusted the Japanese and feared reprisals for having fought beside the ousted Americans. But they were animated by growing national ambitions, and the talk of early self-government had great appeal.

The Japanese worked hard at winning over the Filipinos. They released captured Filipino soldiers. They organized Japanese-Filipino cultural exchanges and established the local language, Tagalog, as the official language along with Japanese. In 1943 they declared the Philippines an independent republic.

But even as the Japanese officials pressed for good relations, they revealed themselves as callous oppressors. They controlled the press, made it a capital offense to listen to foreign broadcasts, curtailed religion, and beat and tortured civilians whom they suspected of subversive activities. They overlooked the excesses of the Japanese troops and issued worthless military scrip, triggering a ruinous inflation.

By May of 1942, when the Japanese completed their conquest of the islands, the people of Manila had made up their minds about the Japanese. Hundreds of them took to the hills to fight again as guerrillas or joined clandestine intelligence units in the city.”

In Search of Moby Dick: Quest for the White Whale by Tim Severin (£9.50)Publisher: Little, Brown & Co. — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0316645958]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper, with a short nick to the bottom corner of the upper panel and light soiling and rubbing to the lower panel. Extensive previous owner’s inscription to the ½-title page. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Maps to the endpapers. Illustrated with black and white drawings. From the cover: “Herman Melville’s famous novel Moby Dick immortalised the idea of a battling white sperm whale roaming the ocean — but could such a beast exist?

Acclaimed writer and explorer Tim Severin travels to the islands of the Pacific to find out. He picks up the trail on Nuku Hiva in the Marquesas archipelago, where the 21 year old Melville jumped ship in 1842 — deserting the American whalerAcushnet, the model for his fictionalPequod, commanded by the one legged, half mad Ahab. Comparing Melville’s description of Nuku Hiva with the realities of its geography and history, Severin learns how Melville was a master at colouring his own experiences with tall tales — as well as borrowing genuine eyewitness accounts from other visitors to the Pacific. This, Severin begins to suspect, is also how Moby Dick was created. To sift truth from fiction, Severin decides to enquire among the last surviving whale hunters of the great ocean if they have ever met the white whale.

From Nuku Hiva to the Philippines, from Tonga to Indonesia, Severin travels on a fascinating journey of discovery. Along the way he encounters the extraordinary hook jumpers of Pamilacan, who make their living by leaping on the backs of ten ton whale sharks. He observes a Tongan harpooner named Samson now a priest in the Tongan church — re enact the mystic ballet of a kill, transporting himself to his youth like a shaman from a forgotten age. And he accompanies the fishermen of Lamalera, who still hunt sperm whale by hand from their Stone Age boats. For them the white whale is no fiction but an ancestor which must be treated with respect. The leviathan is ‘Leader of the Whales’, intelligent and aggressive … and real.

Superb travel writing combined with personal and historical anecdote make this an intriguing and enlightening exploration of one of the ocean’s enduring myths.”
