Editorial Reviews

100 b/w and 40 color illustrations & 7 x 9 & Japan's navy heavily influenced the outcome of the Pacific War. But though many of its highly skilled pilots achieved "acedom," they were only able to delay the inevitable. Through profiles of the aces, scale drawings of all the major navy types, text explaining tactics, and other painstakingly researched details, this book offers insight on a subject for which there is little information available in English.


An excellent book that covers all the Japanese Naval Aces of World War II. Most of us who have read up on this subject are familiar with names like Saburo Sakai and Nishizawa. Henry Sakaida has compiled years of research into this book and gives us insight into the other Japanese aces and the aircraft they flew. Sadaaki Akamatsu and the J2M Raiden - whose exploits in the air and on the ground were every bit as legendary as Pappy Boyington. Warrant Officer Muto and the N1K1 Shiden - a man whom Saburo Sakai once commented was the 'Toughest pilot in the Japanese Naval Air Force' These two are just a few of the many pilots covered in this book. Highly recommended. You will not be disappointed!
