Book on Japanese war planning

While recognizing that the unannointed are not supposed to discuss books, I trust I may be permitted to express the hope that H-War will publish a review of 

Miwa, Yoshirō. Japan's economic planning and mobilization in wartime, 1930s-1940s: The competence of the state. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2015.

I certainly have found it a source of novel perspective on Japan's military history of the period and believe that many other anglophone readers would too.
