Opis produktu:

Little has been published in English on the Japanese Army Air Force (JAAF), let alone its most successful fighter pilots - no less than 150 of them achieved ace status during eight years of near-constant war, and they are all listed in this volume. From the arid plains of the Mongolian border region to the lush jungles of New Guinea, the JAAF was more than a match for the many opponents it fought against for control of the skies. Indeed, even when the mighty Allied war machine proved almost overwhelming from early 1944 onwards, the elite fighter pilots of the various sentais within the JAAF fought on with near-fanatical loyalty in defence of the Home Islands. Aircraft of the Aces 13 and 22 are also available in a single volume as ‘Aces of the Rising Sun 1937-1945’.

Contents

A third generation Japanese American (Sansei), Henry Sakaida has spent much of his life researching the shadowy history of the Japanese fighter pilot. His eye for detail, and exhaustive research, has led to him being given access to much archive material by former aces who have remained silent since the end of the war. Henry Sakaida was born in Santa Monica, California in October 1951. He became interested in Russian/Soviet culture and war history after taking a Russian language course and has travelled to the Ukraine and Russia twice to conduct research. He is an experienced author and has written a number of books about his other main interest, Japanese combat aviation history, including three for Osprey. Henry lives with his wife and two children in Temple City, 15 miles east of Los Angeles.
