Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Japanese 52nd Army was an army of the Imperial Japanese Army during the final days of World War II. The Japanese 52nd Army was formed on April 7, 1945 under the Japanese 12th Area Army as part of the last desperate defense effort by the Empire of Japan to deter possible landings of Allied forces in central Honsh during Operation Downfall. The Japanese 52nd Army was based in Sakura, Chiba Prefecture and was thus intended to guard the closest beachhead to Tokyo and the Kant region along the B s Peninsula. It consisted mostly of poorly-trained reservists, conscripted students and Volunteer Fighting Corps home guard militia. It was demobilized at the surrender of Japan on August 15, 1945 without having seen combat.
