This book is not only for those with lots of standard Imperial Japanese Army and Navy figures who want to paint something different. The information and photos included make this book a great one to have if you are interested in Pacific Island fighting and the Japanese forces. I used the writing on a flag from one of the photos as the basis for a converted IJA figure of my own!

Nila's text is a comprehensive treatment of the history of the SNLF and descriptions of their uniforms, equipment, insignia and weapons. Included are breathtaking, never before published wartime photos. The centerpiece of the book is Rolfe's extensive collection of original SNLF equipment. Photographed on real human models these stunning photos represent front and back of officers and enlisted men in each of the SNLF uniforms. Rolfe's collection includes rarities like their bullet proof vests, helmets and all equipment carried by the troops. For anyone interested in the SNLF, this book is one of the only references available in English.
