Synopsis: This new book is the first in English on this fascinating and increasingly popular military collectible. The main purpose of this book is to provide the reader with accurate information to aid in translating, determining the origin, value and history of the Japanese military Sake cups. Sake cups were commissioned by naval troops, pilots, tank crews, supply crews, infantrymen, cavalrymen, telegraph and railroad engineers with an innumerable variation of colors and designs. Each cup is a mini time capsule with the owners name and regiment inscribed, enabling the collector to search for the background and history of the soldier who once drank a victory toast, or a farewell toast with these very cups. It is hoped the book will foster a greater understanding and appreciation for this little known field of Japanese militaria/art collecting.

Review: The Western image of Japanese soldiers drinking Sake before an important battle is part of the legends of World War 2. However, this book seeks to dismiss some of the more myths and replace them with harder facts. This interesting tome details the history of these relatively small items and their associated bottles and trays. These cups were produced for a variety of reasons such as being called-up, commemorative cups for promotions, special events, homecoming and home leave. The array of reasons why they were produced is astounding and certainly unlike the Western myth of Japanese servicemen drinking their last drink before battle or Kamikaze attack. These cups were an indispensable part of Japanese military culture and this superb book de-mythises them. This must be the leading book on military Sake cups in the English language. If you want to know more about this topic then this book is the reference book to buy. It will certainly start you on voyage of discovery and I am very confident that you will be happy that this new discovery has started. Finally, the author must be thanked for producing this English language publication on a subject that would not otherwise be available in English.
