According to the Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare, the total number of military personnel at the end of World War II numbered 7,889,100 with 5,472,400 in the Army and 2,416,700 in the Navy. This total does not include the vast numbers of militia and paramilitary units that were organized in anticipation of the coming invasion of the Japanese Home Islands, which would add approximately 30 million to that total.
