Full Description:

"A must-have for any serious scholar of the Pacific War." —Air & Space

"Undoubtedly one of the most important books concerning World War II to appear in the last decade." —The Hook

This acclaimed sequel to the Peattie/Evans prizewinning work, Kaigun, 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 Navy's essential strengths and weaknesses, the 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.

Mark R. Peattie is professor emeritus at the University of Massachusetts at Boston and a research fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. He is the author of several books including, Sunburst: The Rise of Japanese Naval Air Power, 1909–1941.
