Akira Yoshimura (au); Retsu Kaiho (tr); Michael Gregson (tr). The history of the production & use of the famous Zero fighter aircraft, the finest “dogfighter” in the air for most of WW2. Superbly written with an eye to detail, this narrative presents WW2 from the Japanese point of view. Both the superiority of the aircraft in the early stages of the Pacific War & the great stature of Jiro Horikoshi as an aircraft designer will come as a revelation to most readers. Also of interest is the story of the transport section at the Nagoya Aircraft Works. Ultimately more than the history of an airplane -- though the Zero is presented with the grandeur due it -- this book is an astute presentation of the Japanese character & world view, a picture of the patience of the Japanese in the face of adversity. Bestseller in Japan. Photos.
