Nihon no sensō = Japan's war in colour  Cover Image DVD DVD

Nihon no sensō = Japan's war in colour

日本の戦争 = Japan's war in colour / a TWI/Carlton production ; producer, David Batty.

Summary: "Using never-before-seen footage, Japan's war in colour tells a previously untold story. It recounts the history of the Second World War from a Japanese perspective, combining original colour film with letters and diaries written by Japanese people ... Until recently, it was believed that no colour film of Japan existed prior to 1945. But specialist research has now unearthed a remarkable colour record from as early as the 1930s."--Container.
