Japanese intelligence in World War II by Ken Kotani( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the eyes of history, Japanese intelligence in World War II has fared very poorly. However, these historians have most often concentrated on the later years of the war, when Japan was fighting a multi-front war against numerous opponents. In this groundbreaking new study, Japanese scholar Ken Kotani re-examines the Japanese Intelligence department, beginning with the early phase of the war. He points out that without the intelligence gathered by the Japanese Army and Navy they would have been unable to achieve their long string of victories against the forces of Russia, China, and Great Britain. Notable in these early campaigns were the successful strikes against both Singapore and Pearl Harbor. Yet as these victories expanded the sphere of Japanese control, they also made it harder for the intelligence services to gather accurate information about their growing list of adversaries. At the battle of Midway in 1942, Japanese intelligence suffered its worst mishap when the Americans broke their code and tricked the Japanese into revealing the target of their attack. It was a mistake from which they would never recover. As the military might of Japan was forced to retreat and her forces deteriorated, so too did her intelligence services. This new study describes Japanese signals and counterintelligence operations, and the growth of intelligence use from its pre-war days through the early successes of the Pacific War to the later failures and the fundamental flaws that caused them. This revisionist work is a significant contribution to a fascinating aspect of military history that draws on a wide range of previously unpublished material, providing new insight into the effectiveness of Japanese intelligence and the role it played in World War II. -- from publisher description

The termination of wars in historical perspective : 2015 International Forum on War History : proceedings : September 30, 2015, Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo) by NIDS International Forum on War History( Book )

"Traditionally, interest in wars has been on how they began, and how they were fought. In the case of research in Japan on the Pacific War, the majority has analyzed the process leading to the war, while research on decision-making in Japan during the war and during the process of ending the war is still sparse. However, analyzing how wars were terminated is clearly equally as important ... the termination of wars is often more difficult and complicated that their commencement ... from a national security perspective, (1) the avoidance of war, (2) the limiting of any war that occurs, and (3) the ultimate termination of war, have all become important issues. In particular, the importance of 'exit strategies," as can be seen even today in Afghanistan and the Middle East, has attracted much attention. The examination of the termination of wars from a historical perspective therefore should provide many valuable insights and lessons with contemporary implications. The termination of a number of significant wars which have been fought from the 19th century onwards shall therefore be examined and compared during this Forum"--Page 3
