Recently, Professor yoshiro Miwa has published a new book on the Japan’s Economic Planning and Mobilization in Wartime, 1930s-1940s. This book is interesting because describe in detail not only the war mobilization and strategic plans but also the budget and economic situation that led to the Pacific War. One of the weakest points of Japanese strategy was the lack of logistic support. The book addresses several other weaknesses and strengths of the Japanese strategic plans, focusing on the economic and mobilization aspects.
The author is the professor Yoshiro Miwa, from Gakuin university and the prestigious University of Tokyo.
I recommend this book because it is largely unexplored topic and it is written by a Japanese expert on the subject, using the latest available disclosed information.
