This book charts comprehensively the various discoveries in Southeast Asia and the Pacific of Japanese soldiers still fighting the Second World War many years after it had ended. It explores their return to Japan and their impact on the Japanese people, revealing changing attitudes to war veterans and war casualties' families, as well as the ambivalence of memories of the war.

Beatrice Trefalt lectures in East Asian History in the School of Liberal Arts, University of Newcastle.Review:
'Sometimes the best presents come in little packages. And so it is with Beatrice Trefalt's Japanese Army Stragglers, which uses a small story to get at the much larger question of the ways in which Japanese have thought about the Asia-Pacific War and postwar society since 1945.' - Japanese Studies
