The Japanese Monographs were the foundation of the volumes with more information and corrections added by the Japanese War History Office in Tokyo. The new information came from Japanese documents that were returned to Japan in 1958 by the Allies including, personal diaries, interviews with senior officers, etc. These were only published in Japanese.

One volume, Japanese Army Operations in the South Pacific Area was translated to English by the Australia-Japan Research Project (AJRP) and is available online free as a PDF file.
