Battle Carried: Imperial Japanese Tiger Art Good Luck Flags of World War Two
Hardcover - English

No other animal served to inspire and motivate the Japanese warrior in World War Two more than the magnificent tiger.

From the author of "Imperial Japanese Good Luck Flags and One-Thousand Stitch Belts," Michael Bortner's long awaited "Battle Carried" examines World War Two era Imperial Japanese good luck signed flags, featuring artistic renderings of the tiger.

"Battle Carried" examines the history, meaning and cultural context of tiger imagery as it applied to the decoration of good luck flags. Through hundreds of extensive color images and detailed close-ups, as well as woodblock prints and rare vintage photographs, this book superbly illustrates some of the rarest and most highly sought after specimens of tiger art flags, many of which are identified to their soldier, sailor and airmen owners.

"Battle Carried" is an invaluable resource for artists and scholars of Japanese culture, as well as for historians and collectors of flags and Japanese wartime memorabilia.
