Often wrongly termed Imperial Marines, they were in fact sailors led by Naval officers, and traced their origins directly to landing parties from warships. Their true combat debut was at Shanghai in 1932; thereafter the SNLF expanded and fought in the assaults that followed Pearl Habor in 1941, and were dispersed as island garrisons during the Pacific campaigns. This book describes their uniforms and equipment in unprecedented detail, including color photos of original items from private collections. Read on the Scribd mobile app.

The spearhead of Japan's assault landing operations both in China pre-Pearl Harbor, and in US and British territory post-Pearl Harbor, was provided by the Special Naval Landing Forces - 12 numbered battalion-size Imperial Japanese Navy units.

These included the infamous battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa.

Gary Nila has produced a book that collectors will not want to miss. Unlike most Osprey titles, this one is packed with photos of artifacts and discussions on markings, variants and construction--just the sort of stuff collectors need and want.
Photo quality is wanting, however. Many images are a too dark to see the details that the author describes. Nevertheless, collecting WWII Japanese material is an area in need of quality research, and author Nila has filled an important niche. It is well-worth the price. I would have happily paid more for a hardcover edition with better photographs. I hope Osprey and Nila work out plans for a more comprehensive treatment of this subject.

Nice book, full of information.

This is the first reference book I have found that was dedicated to the myths and truths to just who these troops were, what they were trained for and how they were used.

Comprehensive overview to World War II Japanese Marine uniforms. A very good complement to the Japanese Army uniform book. The SNLF did have distinctive uniforms from their army counterparts. Good reference book.

I only wish the book was longer, but few Japanese every voluntarily surrendered in combat so little in the way of first-person accounts is available for the historian to work with. Anyway, this is an excellent introduction to the Imperial Navy's shock troops in WWII.
