Bunny Operatives Operating Operationally inna Operations

This page is for most of the works relating to Motofumi Kobayashi, known best for his historical drama series Cat Shit One. The original Cat Shit One series (set during the Vietnam War) was licensed in the U.S and is unavailable here, while the Cat Shit One '80s spin-off (set during the, you guessed it, 1980's) has it's own page for the time being.

Many of his works are heavily involved with World War II military history such as Operation Barbarossa and historical biographies of Michael Whittmann and Jochen Peiper. Many of his works also dive into alternate reality scenarios such as a theoretical invasion of Japan by the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
