The information in this work was obtained from the formerly restricted Navy publication Intelligence Targets Japan (DNI) dated 4 September 1945, revised and published in February 1946.

The report was entitled "Characteristics of Japanese Naval Vessels, Article 10, Landing Craft," prepared by the U.S. Naval Technical Mission to Japan.

Much of the information was obtained from Japanese sources. The work covers landing craft proper, special naval craft and craft used by the Japanese Army.

This newly produced (not a facsimile) reprint of this hard-to-find report will delight all World War II naval history buffs.
