This book in English is a translation by Willem Remmelink of the original Japanese volume 26 of the Senshi Sōsho series. Between 1966 and 1980, the War History Office of the National Defence College of Japan (now the Centre for Military History of the National Institute for Defence Studies) published the 102-volume Senshi Sōsho (War History Series). These volumes give a detailed account of the operations of the Imperial Japanese Army and the Imperial Japanese Navy during the Second World War. Volume 26 of the series concerns the operations of the Japanese Navy during the attack on the Dutch-Indies at the beginning of the second World War. The book provides new insight into these operations, especially the operations in the Java Sea on the 27th and 28th February 1942. This present book is the second complete translation of a volume of the Senshi Sōsho series.
