Needs cleanup[edit]

Something tells me that this article could use a major clean-up...

I think that maybe this was created using an online translator, which would explain most of the grammar issues. It will take a lot of work to clean up this article. (Nikkimaria)
I've removed the "copy edit" flag and replaced it with "Cleanup-rewrite" and "incoherent". This article needs a lot more than a copy edit. In its current state, it is impossible to determine what it's trying to say, which means a copy editor cannot "make it mean what it says and say what it means." // ⌘macwhiz (talk) 01:35, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

I've been trying to clean up the article. The early part wasn't too difficult, but I got hung up in the period after 1931, when it becomes really incoherent. As you say, obviously somebody's been trying to translate Japanese directly and failing. I rewrote a couple of paragraphs into fairly coherent English, but I may have misunderstood what the author was trying to say. Wallace McDonald (talk) 06:37, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

I would suggest a title that is easier to understand immediately. Something like "Empire of Japan: Internal Politics, 1914 to 1944" — Preceding unsigned comment added by RNLockwood (talkcontribs) 19:46, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
