Product description

Serving as a sequel to "Kaigun", the prizewinning study of the surface and subsurface forces of the imperial Japanese Navy, this new work illuminates the rise of Japanese naval aviation from its genesis in 1909 to its thunderbolt capability on the eve of the pacific War. In the process of explaining the essential strengths and weaknesses of Japanese naval air power in the years before and during the Pacific War, this book provides the most detailed account available in English of Japan's naval air campaign over China from 1937 to 1941. A final chapter analyzes the utter destruction of Japanese naval air power by 1944.
