The content is, as you would expect from Steven Zaloga, well written and easy to follow...Useful single-volume summary with colour notes and plates. Wide range of photographic coverage. Best viewed as a single-volume primer and source for further reading in-depth. Worthwhile colour illustrations.
David Maynard, Armorama (February 2008)
Japanese tanks are much maligned as under-protected and under-gunned. While this may be true after early 1942, Japanese tank technology was actually in the forefront in the 1930s ... This book has separate sections on six different tanks with photos of each vehicle ... A separate chapter discusses WWII development and deployment of tanks and the final chapter has several different sections detailing Japanese armor use in eight different theaters of the Pacific War ... This is a great book ... [and] a must for anyone interested in the Pacific War.
Michael Koznarsky, Historical Miniature Gamer (Issue 11)
Author Steven J. Zaloga is widely acknowledged as one of the foremost authorities on armor and has put his expertise to use in this book. Each type of tank is detailed along with modifications and variants... it is a book that I can most higholy recommend to the enthusiast and modeler alike.
