    Page 5 - "Ozaki Unit, Shanghai 1934". Ozaki did not command an infantry unit until December 20th, 1937. This unit is mostly known for operations in Tsingtao, so the location of Shanghai is suspicious.

    Page 7 - "Maizuru 1st SNLF, 1937". The uniforms are post 1937 regulation. The unit sign says Sugino Unit, who was commander of Kure 3rd SNLF between 1937-1939. Maizuru 1st SNLF did not exist until 1940.

    Page 20 - "SNLF troops pose with their commanding officer in Shanghai,1934." The equipment and uniforms are not possible for 1934. Most notably many wear late pattern Type 38 pouches which did not exist until 1937. A soldier is noted as having a Bergman SMG, it is actually a Steyr-Solothurn S1-100, which were not seen in use until at least 1938.

    Page 22 - "Troops of the Maizuru 1st SNLF pose in Hainan, China, in 1939... all the enlisted men hold the superior Type 99 rifle and all wear Type 99 pouches". As previously stated, the Maizuru 1st SNLF did not exist until 1940. All of them clearly have Type 38 rifles. There is no such item as Type 99 pouches.

    Page 41 - "SNLF troops of the 81st security battalion". This is not possible, SNLF and "security battalion" are two distinct unit types. Security battalion is a somewhat unsatisfactory translation of keibitai, which is better described guard unit. The men depicted are the 81st Guard Unit, it has no relation to SNLF.


    Models

    Page A - The haversack is worn on the incorrect side, the helmet is tied incorrectly, the gaiters are worn on opposite sides.

    Page B - Petty officers were not issued officer gaiters, the undershirt is worn incorrectly, the gas mask bag is in incorrect configuration, the canteen is not secured.

    Page C - The date of 1942-45 is not possible for this uniform and equipment. It should be late 1943 to 1945. The canteen and mapcase are worn on incorrect sides for a naval officer.

    Page D - This equipment is not appropriate for the date of 1940-45. The cap is late 1943 regulation, the gas mask bag is 1942. Body armor did not see significant use by the IJN aside from in Shanghai between 1936 and 1937. The configuration of gear is not correct for any IJN Type 89 user.


    *This is just a list of major errors. About 50% or more of the period photos have incorrect information captioned. There are countless minor errors and inconsistencies present on every page in the book.
