3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mark Hunter on 7 Mar. 2009
Format: Paperback
Although always well-written and presented some of the Elite 'Tactics' Books can be prone to cross repetition. The Jungle Warfare Tactics edition generally avoids this pitfall and thankfully due to the nature of the campaign the reader is spared yet more comment on the characteristics and use of the Panzerfaust. The first section of the book detailing Allied failure is particularly enlightening and throughout the work there are some interesting and evocative photographs. The text dispels some of the untruths connected with jungle fighting and this is a valuable edition to a subject that remains (as the campaign was at the time) relatively obscure.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The second or third book I read from this author. Not dissapointed for the moment. I must admit that the author makes perhaps 50% of the quality of title from my point of view.

In this title, jungle warfare is presented in some degree of details that are probably sufficient to give an introduction to the reader. The chronological approach works well and we go from the early british defeat, to the development of the "chindits", to the end of the war.
What I really liked, were the numerous sketches presenting the tactics, etc.
Everything is there really.

Perhaps what I not always like in the author's book is the over-reliance on textbooks and infantry manuals, etc.
Quite often, the author will say that the manual was outdated for the reality of the war, etc. but will keep taking extract of these and adding them to the text. Sometimes, I wish the author was giving more on actual battle experience and proven tactics. Not tactics from the pre-war manuals that did not work anyway.
I found this out in the author's other book on infantry tactics of WWII.

What is well done is the presentation of the Japanese tactics and approach to the war. Of course, the book is too thin to really get an overview but you get insights of the Japanese school of mind.

Perhaps, missing is a good map showing where all the combat took place. We are told this happened there, this here, etc. but nothing really clear to help you with geography. The far east is generally not familiar to most readers.

To conclude, a very good title providing a solid and colourful overview of WWII jungle warfare.

Rather hollow. 10 April 2007
By M. Ansai - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was expecting something more comprhensive concenring to tactics in this book and found that the content is a rather superficial collection of quotations on several manuals and other publications. Maybe the size of the book does not allow for a deep analysis and explanation but some more detailed information should be possible. The other books of Osprey's Tactics series are much more to the point. Illustrations are interesting as is usually the case in Osprey's series.

Bring history to life. 10 April 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Dr. Stephen Bull's WORLD WAR II JUNGLE WARFARE TACTICS describes and illustrates the course of the Allies as they struggled against Japanese strongholds in the pacific. Wartime training documents and front-line memoirs of action spice a survey of these battles and bring history to life.
Expected More 8 Dec. 2012

I blame the low rating on my expectations. On re-reading the description of this book, I saw that it did not try to oversell the book. This would be a good book for a young teen who was unfamiliar with WWII jungle warfare. As a much older reader who has read many books on WWII, I was disappointed.
