Can anyone recommend some English language books that detail the Manchurian Incident? Most books I have cover the entire invasion in only a few pages. The most in depth source I've seen in English is wikipedia, but I'd like a second source. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

A good work that covers the entire subject, not only military, is Louise Young's Japan's Total Empire. But it isn't filled with minute operational details...

I would also add Mark Peattie's superb Ishiwara Kanji and Japan's Confrontation with the West (1975), which is a masterpiece. Also Beasley's excellent JAPANESE IMPERIALISM (1987), and the James Morley volume on Manchuria: JAPAN ERUPTS the London Naval Conference and the Manchurian Incident, 1928-1932 : selected translations from Taiheiyō Sensō e no michi, kaisen gaikō shi.(1984)

English language studies of operational matters are few & far between. Japanese-language sources, on the other hand, are plentiful and rich.

Thanks cstunts for the suggestions. In regards to the book Japan Erupts does it provide, as you said, minute by minute details of the Japanese invasion? Or at least a good summary of the campaign?

Hello,

No, Morley's work is more concerned with the political and military maneuverings that led up to the "Manchurian Crisis" than actual operational details--and I said "minute" as in small, not "minute by minute"-- of the campaign...but, then again, it wasn't that much of a military campaign either. There was not a great deal of organized, substantive Chinese resistance. But, I'd still look for it--Most good college libraries will have some, if not all, of the Morley series.
