Western studies of Japanese Intelligence in World War II have invariably concluded that this service was very poor. However, these studies have always concentrated on the later years of the war, when Japan was fighting a multi-front war against numerous opponents. In this groundbreaking new study, Japanese scholar Ken Kotani re-examines the Japanese Intelligence department, beginning with the early phase of the war. He points out that without the intelligence gathered by the Japanese Army and Navy they would have been unable to achieve their long string of victories against the forces of Russia, China, and Great Britain. Notable in these early campaigns were the successful strikes against both Singapore and Pearl Harbor.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There were plenty of examples where intelligence played a critical role with key events, such as the American success prior to Midway in the intelligence realm that ultimately led to the sinking of four Japanese fleet carriers. Although the Japanese military intelligence apparatus, both army and navy, were not up to par when compared to their western counterparts, it still played a critical and successful role in the preparation and execution of war against Russia, China, and the United Kingdom.
Author Ken Kotani, an authority in this field with the National Institute for Defense in Japan, dove into very minute details with his book Japanese Intelligence in World War II...Kotani's fair evaluation of both strengths and weaknesses makes Japanese Intelligence in World War II among the best of the topic, particular in the west." -C. Peter Chen, "World War 2 Database (www.ww2db.com)

""Japanese Intelligence in World War II "comes from a Japanese scholar who provides a reassessment telling how the Japanese used information from the Soviets, the Chinese and others in planning Japanese strategy and tactics... This study describes Japanese signals, counter-intelligence tactics, and their use of intelligence from pre-war through their successes and ultimate failure. Japanese, military and general history holdings at the college-level will find this focus fascinating." -"The Bookwatch"(December 2009)
"Here, at last, is a comprehensive account of the secret inner sanctum of the Japanese intelligence community... This book is a real eye-opener and should be on every reader's bookshelf." -"World War II History" (July 2010)"
