The Imperial Japanese Army (大日本帝国陸軍 dai-Nippon teikoku rikugun, Army of the Great Japanese Empire), modern characters (Japanese 大日本帝國陸軍 dai-Nippon teikoku rikugun) is a type of armed forces of the Japanese Empire (ground forces, army), existed from 1868 to 1945.
The army was controlled by the General Staff of the Imperial Japanese Army and subordinated to the Ministry of the Army, but both of these structures reported directly to the Emperor of Japan as the supreme commander of the land, sea and air forces and the generalissimo. The third structure supervising the army was the General Inspectorate of Aviation. During a war or a state of emergency, all nominal command duties on the part of the emperor were concentrated in the Imperial Headquarters - ad hoc military body, which consisted of the chief of the General Staff of the army and his deputy, the minister of the army, the commander-in-chief of the Imperial Navy and his deputy, the Inspector General of Aviation and the Chief Inspector combat training.
The prerequisites for the creation of the Imperial Japanese Army took shape at the beginning of the Meiji Restoration in 1868. During the civil war of 1868-1869. The imperial government realized the urgent need to reform the armed forces. At that time, there was no unified state army, and the central government relied on individual samurai militias of individual autonomous destinies. To manage them in August 1869, the government established the Ministry of War. Along with coordinating the country's armed forces, it was supposed to develop a project for their reform along the lines of the advanced states of Europe and the United States.
