KANJI & CODES
LEARNING JAPANESE FOR WORLD WAR II
BY IRWIN L. SLESNICK & CAROLE E. SLESNICK
"The ailment was called 'Kanji Kichigai', character madness." stated Ev Bleiler, an Army Japanese language student, describing the overwrought behaviour of men studying night and day to learn Japanese.
The book is an exhaustive introduction to the topic of Japanese training and the use of Japanese linguists and Japanese Language Officers during the Pacific War.
American Japanese language schools date back to 1908, but the real push came from dedicated Army, Navy and Marine Corps officers who set up more schools in 1941, and against all odds, succeeded in training the men and women who help to win the war and go on to make a huge contribution in winning the peace with Japan.
