For China World War II has a rather different significance to that in the rest of the world. China had been more or less at war for many years, with revolutions & fighting between parties & warlords taking their toll, while the 1931 Japanese invasion & occupation of Manchuria led to a kind of low-level war with her aggressive neighbour that suddenly became full-scale when Japanese forces invaded & conquered large parts of China from 1937. When Japan attacked the USA and the British Empire in 1941 China became one of the allied powers, but in large measure left the final defeat of Japan to the westerners. The years 1941 to 1945 were mainly ones of stalemate, when large Japanese resources that could have been useful elsewhere were tied down in China, but the Chinese also husbanded their strength for what most expected to be a renewed civil war between nationalist & communist once the Japanese menace was removed.

The sculpting is great, with all the usual natural proportions and good detail that we have come to expect from Caesar and no suggestion of flash anywhere. Several figures benefit from the usual multi-part mould which gives them an added three-dimensional look without any loss of detail (the prone machine gunner is a perfect example).

As expected the civil war resumed after Japan’s surrender & many soldiers on both sides in that conflict looked no different to those found in this box. Although swords are over-represented this is otherwise a great set that finally depicts millions of World War II fighters not previously recognised in this hobby.

This abridged appraisal is supplied care of Plastic Soldier Review.
