Know Your History: Simo Hayha – The White Death

Simo Hayha – The White Death

Even today, it is comparatively difficult to find detailed information about Japanese military units in the Second World War. The Pacific Theater was vast, the ocean or jungles swallowed up entire units with their ultimate fates being inferred only after the war by comparison with Allied records. Most original wartime records and photographs were ordered destroyed by the Japanese government, whether officially held or in private collections. This periodically results in the re-discovery of some lost detail of interest of historians and modelers, such as the recent revelation of the shape of the stern of the battleship…
