I found someone on ebay is selling a ww 2 Japanese phrasebook. Its pretty interesting--you don't have to buy the book to read whats inside so take a look below at the way they trained American soliders to speak restricted Japanese. The choice of words is especially interesting--commands you'd expect to use on POWs, or when lost for example.http://cgi.ebay.com/VINTAGE-1944-WW2-RESTR...=item35b1231cbdhttp://books.google.com/books?id=Ch9kAAAAM...p;q&f=false
