Actually I think this is probably true, I tried searching some yesterday to determine what exactly they were using.

The Japanese routinely gave Methamphetamine (shabu) to troops during WWII, especially kakikazi, to hype them up. We used amphetamines for the same reason, recently troops in Somalia had to deal with locals wacked out on Ghat.
