Imperial Japanese Espionage
Shadows of Imperial Japan
230 pages, 23 chapters and 9 appendixes
This e-book is a dark dossier of Imperial Japanese espionage, documenting
a strange history of subterfuge, obfuscation and stealth; exploring terms,
tradecraft, organizations and the role of Imperial Japanese espionage over
the years before and during World War II. The shadows of Imperial Japan’s
spycraft are long and dark. Hidden in the murky fog of the past is a story that
will surprise you. In fact, Imperial Japanese Espionage is many stories
because the secrets of those hidden byways are complicated by the very
numbers of Imperial Japanese espionage organizations and agents, over
175,000 men and women.
“Early in January 1943, a series of time-bomb explosions rocked Canton, China, in the Chang Hang Chieh neighborhood
dotted by impressive buildings then occupied by Japanese military and puppet government officials: The blasts were part
of a Chinese-Formosan plot to assassinate Major General Kanju Yasaki, chief of the Canton office of the feared S. S. O.
— the Japanese espionage group known as the Special Service Organization or Tokwnu Kikan.
Actually, the bombs exploded but the plot failed. Warned of the plan at the last moment, the Japanese had withdrawn key
personnel and important documents from the buildings. The "terrorists acting on orders from Chungking" were arrested,
but the Japs had not had time to detect and neutralize the hidden time bombs. The eleventh hour hero who thwarted the
scheme — and saved the blood-smirched life of General Yasaki — was one Surumato Susio, code named "little man" in
the Japanese Intelligence Service.”
