Four Photograph Albums Documenting Training and Service in the Imperial Japanese Army in the Interwar Years. Description: Four photograph albums containing a total of 558 mounted images documenting military training and service in Japan in 1920s and 30s, all in very good condition. Although we acquired these albums together, they appear to have belonged to different people. Most, if not all, were officers. One album has handwritten captions, the others do not, but do have some group photographs with captions in the negative. Two identity documents are tipped in to one album that, we are told, are for people with the family names Yokoo and Hayashi. During the interwar years, Japanese culture was pervaded by the conviction that a strong military was the solution to most problems, foreign and domestic. The Army enjoyed considerable independence from the civilian government, and various factions within the military played a major role in directing the country’s foreign policy. As described by historian David Hunter-Chester in The Culture of Military Organizations, (Cambridge, 2019) the Imperial Japanese Army’s organizational culture produced tough, proficient, and courageous soldiers. These albums reflect great pride in military service, with numerous images of their subjects in dress uniform (singly and in groups) and engaged in military exercises, including bayonet training, firing machine guns, field and parade drills, physical fitness (ropes course, gymnastics), equestrian training, cleaning and assembly of weapons, and more. There are also images of soldiers in the classroom, at leisure sporting events, sumo, at a public bath, etc. , and at special events and celebrations-the latter characterized by an abundance of Japanese and Imperial Army flags. These albums reflect an ethos that was soon to vanish. The military culture of pride in excellence, according to Hunter-Chester, left it unable to deal with military losses; it was a culture that prized reputation over public honesty, ritualized death and placed its own judgment above question. According to its own creed, the [Army] should have’done its utmost to protect the state. Instead its soldiers are remembered in Japan and much of the world as’beasts. See our other Asia. Condition Descriptions Defined: We grade our books and dust jackets using the traditional language of the antiquarian book trade. In brief: Fine is the highest grade and means essentially as new, without visible faults or defects; Near Fine means approaching fine, but with one or more very minor defects or faults, which will be noted; Very Good means the book shows some general (but not too offensive) signs of wear and use, which will be noted; Good means the book is complete and intact, but has more wear or some internal markings. Any ex-library book will be graded no higher than Good, even if it is otherwise a very nice copy. Again, all flaws will be noted. We rarely offer any books in Fair or Poor condition, but if we do, the reasons for the grade will be evident from the photo(s) and description. Please notify us in advance of any return.

An outstanding US Navy or Marine sailor’s photo album. A singular production of more than 500 photographs taken or acquired while assigned to the Yangtze River gunboat USS Oahu in the early-1930’s. The album measures approximately 15 x 11. It is string bound and its flexible board panels are covered in a faux-reptile skin cloth. There are a bit more than 500 photographs (I count 513) mounted to the rectos and versos of 37 black paper leaves, loosely fit into dry corner mounts (and easily and safely removable). The majority of photos, about 350 of them, appear to be original snapshots captured by the soldier. They range in size from about 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ to 5 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. This section is in the front and separated by about a dozen blank leaves, then proceeded by about 160 more photographs which appear to be a blend of commercial or souvenir prints and photos captured by a more skilled photographer. Most of these measure approximately 4″ x 3″ and there are some phenomenal cultural images among them. There are also about 8 enlarged photographs, approximately 8″ x 10, ” including the excellent identified and dated photograph of the Oahu crew shown here in the first image. It is dated 1932 and is the only dated photo in the album, though the balance of contents seem firmly within the same timeframe. There is no notation to any of the album pages and we’ve carefully removed several of the prints and haven’t found any notations to print versos either. This is fresh from a local, multi-generational estate and is as-found by me ; nothing has been added or removed. I strongly suspect the soldier was from the St. This is a significant photographic document of the Yangtze Patrol captured during an important time immediately preceding the outbreak of World War II in the Pacific.

Tens crews launched their B-24 Liberators into the dark, cold morning air on March 14, 1945 from. William Bradley flew next to Lt. Who commanded the aircraft as they headed to bomb the Marshaling Yard at Nove Zamky, Hungary. Their crew of twelve included two navigators, a radar nav, bombardier. Engineer, radio operator, and four gunners. The overall mission was deemed a success, but the only man to survive on Martzs crew had a dramatic tale to tell. Memorial Day, where we remember those who have died in battle, seemed an appropriate time to tell a story about a distant Parks relative, Lt. William Bradley, who died in World War II. My husband had become particularly interested in him (a cousin once removed) after he discovered William and his brother were fellow Georgia Tech yellow jackets. The oldest brother graduated in 1941, and William entered that year as a freshman. William left college two years later in 1943, as many young men did, to go to war. He was commissioned a 2LT in the Army Air Corp in 1943 and assigned to the 781st Bomb Squadron, 465 Bomb Group, 15th Air Force, flying B-24 Liberators. The the unit trained at McCook field Nebraska and operated until the war in Europe ended in 1945. The only man to survive William Bradleys last flight was engineer, T/Sgt. Beeson, who told his story about the fateful flight. Today that story and many others are printed in a booklet. Of the units history published by the 781. Below is an abbreviated version of that event told by Beeson in 1987. The bombing run to the marshaling yard was not different than many others. The flak, while not as heavy as theyd encountered before, had pegged the formations location. The crew successfully unloaded their bombs over the target and were preparing to turn and head home. The tail gunner reported flak following their line of flight, bursting closer and closer. An explosion shook their craft. Fire burst on the pilots side as flak came up from underneath his seat. A single glance revealed Martz had died. The last thing Beeson saw on the flight. Deck as he hit the bailout alarm was Lt. Bradley attempting to control the damaged aircraft. Beeson grabbed his chute and dropped into the bomb bay where the bombardier joined. Him with chute in hand. The plane lurched, and Beeson fell out, facing up where he could see the plane above going around and around. He never saw where it crashed. Reported three or four chutes leaving the plane, but the unfriendly Hungarians below with their town in flames likely left them no chance for survival. Beeson lived to tell the tale because. He was rescued from the villagers hands by a German soldier. So many people have died in WWII and other wars our nation has fought. I appreciate their sacrifice to allow my friends and family to live in this great country. Some of the other photos in the book are. Photo shows WW11 – crew 29/ C.

This impressive album is 15 x 11.5 with approximately 275 photographs. It is incredibly well done. The photographs are in very nice shape; the cover has. The images document the service of a Marine, assigned to Marine Scouting Squadron VS-1M and begin with photographs of Marine Barracks San Diego, followed by the units deployment to Guam. It helped establish Orote Field at the Apra Harbor Naval Station, the first Marine aviation base in the Pacific. It concludes with images of the Philippines and China. In 1925 fighting between Chinese warlords reached the city of Shanghai, and twice during the year small contingents of Marines landed in the city to protect American interests. In 1927, a more serious threat blossomed as one of the Chinese forces pushed towards the city crushing all opposition in its path and panicking the International Settlement. Remembering the Boxer Rebellion and fearful of recent Communist depredations, the residents of the community clamored for their governments to provide protection. So, in early 1927, the United States ordered the initial deployment of about 340 Marines from Guam to Shanghai including Marine Scouting Squadron VS-1M. Highlights of this album include images of. Marine Barracks San Diego, California. A number of identified naval warships. Many Marine aircraft including what appear to be Curtis HS-2L seaplanes and Boeing FB-1 fighters. Orote Field including hangars, shops, and target practice with 7mm guns. Departing Guam and life in the Philippines a. Baseball, the Dreamland Night Club and brothel, docks, facilities, Philippine locals, railroad travel, urban and rural life, etc. Life in China the U. Legation, warships, soldiers from several countries including what appears to be a mule-drawn U. Army artillery piece, local Chinese, a camel caravan, scenes of the Forbidden City and the Great Wall, etc. One of the nicest military photo albums weve seen, and a rare visual record of early Marine aviation in the Pacific and the initial establishment of long-term U. Military presence in pre-World War II China. View My Other Items For Sale.

WW2 Photo Album China 1937 Japanese Army Occupation Nanking Nanjing Zaozhuang Xuzhou with 384 Photographs Album has descriptions in Japanese on the pages or under the photographs. Some of the cities and counties include Hanzhuang, Jining, Yi, Yixian, Zaozhuang, Xuzhou, Shandong, Jiangsu, Weishan Lake, Han Village, and others. We have seen quite a few Photo Albums that centered around China including many from US servicemen who served in Country. Some were in the 1920s or before and others focusing on just after WW2 US occupation. This album is different in its content and scope because of all the rare locations and subject matter covered. Normally, most Japanese soldier’s photo albums have no Chinese content and if they do is just a small amount of content. What makes the album rare is that all the photos are from towns and cities in China rarely seen. One series of photos shows Japanese soldiers repairing a hotel to be used for comfort women. They hang up a new wooden sign, Hotel Pyeongyang House over “Maohe Hotel” sign. Now to be used as comfort station. What follow is a few pages of photos of comfort women with some obviously Korean and Chinese, and some may be even Japanese. Another series of photos depicts Japanese soldiers and Chinese installing telephone poles. Some of the photographs including marriage ceremony, funerals, soldiers caravans, railroad stations, bridges, war damage, trains, drinking, fishing, farming, weapons, Pagodas, monuments, Shrines, tractors, etc. Surprisingly no gore or death scenes with just a few prisoners and punishment scenes. Without knowing the history of Japan occupation of China, one viewing this album might conclude peace and harmony between Japanese soldiers and Chinese during the war. Photo Album covers 1937 to 1938 with 384 photographs. More than 95% of the photographs are taken in Japan occupied China. Photographs range in size with most photographs smaller 2.5 by 2.25 inches. Most all of the photographs are well shot with sharp fine detail. Album measures about 14 by 11 inches. Please see images below for best description.
