DESCRIPTION: A new addition to the very popular Images of War series, 
covering the initial Japanese advances through Malaya and Burma. The 
Japanese achieved some extraordinary rapid advances from the start of their 
campaign until Allied strength and improving tactics began to tell. – Highly 
Recommended

The Japanese made a bold decision to attack the US and the colonial powers in the 
Far East, but their intelligence was frequently flawed and their plan depended on 
very rapid advances, forcing the retreating Allies to seek peace, allowing the 
Japanese to keep all they had conquered. Certainly, the Allies had not prepared for 
this war in the Far East, with America seeking to impose harsh controls on Japan but 
being cautious to prepare for war, France and the Netherlands over run by German 
forces, and Britain standing alone with a primary focus on defending itself from 
possible invasion. However, the Japanese did not manage to advance far enough, 
fast enough, to achieve a forced peace and that inevitably meant that the industrial 
might of the US and the sacrifices of the British and Indians would halt the advances 
and then start the fight back.

In this book there are not only the usual outstanding images expected of this series, 
but coverage of a wider brief than most historians of this struggle. The main focus 
has been on Pearl Harbour, the fall of Singapore and the Japanese troops reaching 
into Indian territory, overlooking the other important events, including the actions 
in the Dutch East Indies.
