My webpage has some information on Shoson, plus a few bibliographic references.
There isn't much published on Koson's war prints. You might try Elisabeth de Sabato-Swinton: In Battle's Light (Worchester Art Museum, 1991; ISBN 0-936042-45-1). I don't have it with me, but I think there is at least one example by Koson.
Other books on war prints (again, I do not have them with me and cannot verify their contents) include:
Impressions from the Front (Shumpei Okamoto; Philadelphia Museum of Art; 1983; ISBN 0-87633-049-9).
Sino-Japanese War:1894-1895 (Nathan Chaikin; 1983; no ISBN; published Bern, Switzerland)
[In response to Jan Perre: "I would like some more information about the artist koson/ shoson/ hoson. Especially about the war-prints from 1903/1904."]
