Product Description

Review

This book by Nicholas Millman is hard to put down. […]Highly recommended to anyone with an interest in this aircraft, its influence on aerial combat during the early years of the Pacific War, and the stories of the pilots who achieved Ace status while flying this outstanding little fighter. --Ipms/USA

Ki-27 'Nate' Aces is an excellent book for modelers, historians and enthusiasts of the Nakajima Ki-27, its pilots, IJAAF, early Asia air war and the early Pacific air war. I heartily recommend it! --armorama.kitmaker.net

The type and its pilots are not well-known in the west so this is a welcome volume. --Air Classics

Once again, Osprey unveils unknown (or at least not so well known) fascinating parts of air war history. The Deadly fight over China a few years before word war II is one, and this volume about the graceful Ki 27 aces offers us such opportunity. Stongly recommended.

A Great Read 2 Oct. 2013
By Adventure57 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Prior to Osprey's series of historical aircraft and aces books it was so hard to find good affordable books on Japanese aircraft and the men who flew and crewed them.
This book will be of interest to many like myself who have always had an interest in Japanese aircraft and operations. Especially in the days just prior to WWII in China and in the early days of the war on the Asian mainland.
The writing is clear..with an excellent balance of technical details and biographies of the aces and pilots. Many historical photos are combined with beautifully drawn scale views of this aircraft.
I would highly recommended this book for anyone who wants a good read on an historical..but often overlooked area of aviation.

I would highly reco

Wonderful profiles and history of the Nate. 24 Sept. 2013
By Charles Duckworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The color profiles are alone worth the price of this book. History of the aircraft and the early Japanese aces is well written. Good photographic coverage as well. I you are looking to add another Japanese Osprey book to your library this one will not disappoint you.
The Ki-27: Dogfighter Supreme! 24 July 2014
By Michael OConnor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've purchased hundreds of Osprey titles over the years. I've enjoyed 'em all, especially those that spotlight little-known aviation history and/or aircraft. Case in point: Nicholas Millman's KI-27 'NATE' ACES. This fascinating OSPREY AIRCRAFT OF THE ACES volume - #103 in the series - presents a wide-ranging and eye-opening summary of Nakajima's nimble dogfighter.

Aside from vague knowledge that the Ki-27 tangled with AVG P-40s, I had little knowledge of Nate combat ops. In fact, the a/c saw combat from 1938 to 1945, fighting against Chinese, Russian, American, British and Dutch opponents ranging from I-16s to B-29s! Amazingly enough, this low-wing, fixed-gear dogfighter armed only with two pop-gun 7.7 mm MGs made up the JAAF's main fighter component during the 1941-42 air offensive against the British and Americans in Southeast Asia. And it scored the first aerial victory of the Pacific War! Later relegated to trainer use, it nevertheless was used to intercept B-29 formations; talk about David and Goliath!

Millman does a marvelous job of detailing the various missions and combats flown by ace pilots such as Shinohara, Saito, Hanada, Ito and others who flew with the 11th, 24th, 50th, 77th, 64th and other Sentais. One of the book's other revelations was the incredible overclaiming made by Nate pilots. In this respect, Millman does a fine job of comparing claims versus actual losses.

Many rare photographs of pilots and a/c are included in the book along with superb color profiles by Ronnie Olsthoorn, who seems to be a new addition to Osprey's stable of artists..

So, for many reasons, Nicholas Millman's KI-27 'NATE' ACES is a great addition to the Osprey line. In revealing the combat life and times of the Ki-27, it provides an exciting, balanced tribute to Nakajima's long-serving fighter. Recommended.
