- Hiroo Onoda was a graduate of the Nakano School, but this is not mentioned in the article. I have removed the reference to the book, but someone might want to expand the article to include something about this...--MChew (talk) 17:31, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
Paratrooper seizure of Palembang
Every history I've read attributes this to the Japanese 1 Parachute Brigade (nicknamed "Dash Forward"), a conventional paratrooper unit. The claim this was done by Nakano School graduates frankly leaves me questioning this entire article. I am also left cold by the fact that Nakano School is mentioned nowhere in Prados' voluminous study of intelligence in the Pacific War. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 15:26, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
- The Japanese 1st Parachute Brigade received military intelligence and training from the Nakano School and its graduates. This is mentioned by Mercado and numerous other sources. The Nakano School itself was not involved in the actual operation to seize the Palembang oil fields. --MChew (talk) 17:31, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
Is this the same 'Nakano military academy' that is mentioned briefly at the beginning of Haruki Murakami's novel 'Norwegian Wood'? If so, the 'Film' section of the article could be amended to reflect this (and, accordingly, renamed e.g. 'In popular culture'). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 01:56, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
