[XVI] 442pp. Index. | Translated by Don Cyril Gorham. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Tables; Maps to the endpapers and blanks; From the cover: “The Pacific War was an air war, yet, until now, Western readers have had little chance to learn about Japan's naval fighter pilots and their World War II air groups. This English translation of a classic Japanese work finally lifts the cloak of anonymity that has hidden their identities from the West for so long. Within these pages the reader gains an intimate and unprecedented view of the men, their aircraft, and their victories and defeats.Divided into three parts, the book opens with rare photos and brief descriptions of the principal Japanese naval aircraft. The second part offers concise histories of the air groups, including every carrier-and land-based fighter unit in the Imperial Navy - from the China Incident in the early 1930s to the end of the Pacific War in September 1945. Dates of organization and disbanding, key movements and action results, brief summaries of important battles, and anecdotes about leaders and aces are all provided. The third part captures Japan's leading naval aces in photos and individual biographical sketches.This translation - the only one available in English - is based on the revised and enlarged 1975 edition of Nihon Kaigun Sentoki-tai, the definitive work on the subject in Japan. To produce this unique record Ikuhiko Hata, an internationally known military historian, and his highly regarded researcher Yasuho Izawa spent years tracking down information and conducting interviews with surviving aces and the families of those killed in the war. Their Japanese perspective adds a significant new dimension to the annals of World War II.Nearly 350 photographs of aces and aircraft - many new to this edition - supplement the text. Some 100 line-drawings of aircraft show unit markings and paint colours. To aid the Western reader this edition adds a section on Japanese naval terminology. Appendix tables chronicle naval fighter aces by record, pilots killed in action, pilots by training class, and major air battles. Indexes by name and unit and end maps of the entire Pacific theatre provide excellent references.”, Shrewsbury: Airlife Publishing Ltd., 1990, New York, NY, U.S.A.: Simon & Schuster, 2010. 1st Edition 1st Printing.

PUBLISHED ON THE FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF the Korean War, this highly readable book presents the most authoritative and comprehensive recounting to date of the secret UN war fought deep behind communist lines. Through the extensive use of Department of Defense and Central Intelligence Agency documents declassified exclusively for this work and from interviews he conducted with veterans of the savage air-land-sea campaigns in North Korea and Manchuria, Michael Haas takes the reader into a world still unknown to most historians. It is a disturbing account by any standard, replete with tragedy, heroism, and scandal. But of special concern are the author's revelations of the bitter bureaucratic feuding that occurred between senior U.S. Army officers and CIA station chiefs in Japan, feuding that Haas says squandered the sacrifices made by Korean partisans and their American advisers, British commandos, U.S. Navy frogmen, and CIA field operatives. --------------------------------------------------------------------A veteran special operations officer and respected author, Colonel Haas is uniquely qualified to analyze this subject and its importance to the development of the modern-day U.S. Special Operations Command. His detailed descriptions of classified operations never before made known to the public will fascinate even those who thought they knew what went on behind communist lines during the war. His careful documentation and realistic presentation will appeal to professionals and general readers alike and assure its acceptance as the definitive study on Korean War special operations.
