Originally published in 1944 by the Military Intelligence Service, Unites States War Department. In suitable terrain, the tank is an ideal weapon for the favorite envelopment tactics of the Japanese, although the Japanese had only made limited use of tanks (up until WWII). The Japanese organization (armored divisions and non-division units), tactics (general doctrine, tanks in infantry support, principles of infantry support, special tactical situations), and equipment (tankettes, light/medium/heavy tanks, armored cars, armament) are detailed in this document. Please note these are copies of important historical documents that have been extensively cleaned up by the publisher. While every effort has been made to make these books accessible they sometimes reflect the nature of the age of the originals including the typefaces, print quality and occassional marginalia. These are not poor quality OCR documents with missing pages or tracts illegible text.
