Japanese monographs. -- Washington, D.C. : Library of Congress Photoduplication Service, [1963?]. -- 14 microfilm reels ; 35 mm.

LC Call Number: Microfilm 8489

The history of World War II in the Far East as remembered by officers of the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy. Since most Japanese records had been destroyed, the U.S. Far East Command directed in October of 1945 that the documents in this collection be prepared to replace what had been lost. The documents suffered from the faulty memories of some of the authors and the defective language skills of some of the translators, and in 1951 an office was set up to correct and edit them. Under the aegis of this office, the Japanese studies on Manchuria were completed several years after the monographs. Their contents were more carefully monitored and are more trustworthy than the contents of the monographs. The same office prepared a study of night combat entitled Japanese Night Combat.
