Hardcover, with dust jacket. Published 1998. Author Raymond Lamont-Brown. 182 pages, about 6 1/2 by 9 1/2 inches. The Kempeitai was Japan's equivalent of the Third Reich's Gestapo, and carried out a program of murder and torture that is shocking. The book provides a history of the organization and an account of its crimes, illustrated with photographs. Excellent to near mint condition.
