I have just finished reading this, the third volume in what must be the best researched, clearest laid out, and apparently very even handed history of the Air War in South East Asia. This third volume concentrates more on Burma than the previous two, but follows the same format. I am not usually a fan of day by day narrative histories, but the three books in this series have more than held my attention. There is enough detail and 'human interest' added to prevent them from in any way becoming 'dry'. The detail, and cross referencing between claims and losses from both sides is impressive. In this 3rd volume one does get a good impression of how much the Americans did contribute to the air war in Burma, both in numbers and in effective tactics (perhaps Errol Flynn was right after all!!). It is also interesting to note the constant attrition rate of the likes of RAF Beaufighter squadrons, this sort of detail is amongst many of the hidden facts and conclusions that can be drawn from this excellent series of books. Recommended for interested casual readers, and more committed war and aircraft buffs. I think I read the three volumes over a period of five years. All are equally highly recommended.

Definitely for the committed. This is the kind of book you read if you are trying to squeeze everything out of what happened in that part of the Far East at that time without actually becoming a full-time historian / researcher going to original archive material and interviewing survivors. Not a book I would recommend to the general public or even to someone who is interested in World War II in a general sort of way, even as it pertains to the Far East.

More of the absolutely essential Shores series. Whilst very detailed it really gets across the operations in each theatre, explains the units involved, and shows the outcomes via carefully researched actual loss rates, not nonsensical over claims. Buy these books - all of them - if you are even vaguely interested in the WW2 Air War.

Mr Shores book is exhaustively researched and must be the starting point for anyone looking to understand the factual framework for any study of the air war in SE Asia during World War Two.

Most importantly he also consults Japanese records and gives due space to the Japanese forces as well as the allies.

Good, no frills narrative history.
