I've been watching this documentary series on the pacific theater in ww2 on nicovideo.www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm14089312
It's interesting to get the Japanese view point, also the comments on these videos is completely different than most nicovideo ww2 vids.
A lot less "nippon stronk!", especially during the parts where it goes into detail about the multitude of mistakes made by Japanese commanders.>Landed 900 guys on an island with orders to recapture an airfield>They're supplied with 2 days of food, one aerial photo and a map that doesn't even include their landing area... they also have zero intel on enemy strength (There were actually 11000 US marines guarding that airfield).
Supplying the troops with minimal food was actually a deliberate thing, the thinking was that you just needed to defeat the enemy then you could eat his food.
This is kinda off-topic I guess but the documentary series is subtitled in Japanese so it makes a lot easier to keep up and learn new words.
