I am not the expert one of the other reviewers is. I have many books on many book shelves about the air war of ww2. It's an all day job to dust them. Well, this book covers alot in it's 64 pages. We have learned alot about IJN & IJA aviation slowly at times over the years. The front cover of the inside of a G4M type 1 Rikko is awesome! I like the list showing the chronology of the naval air arm. It's short, covers 1/2 a page, but gives main dates from 1930-1945. The different training programs are covered. Lots of pictures, especially of biplane trainers. Other photos show the different uniforms & flight equipment. Carrier qualification is done nicely. Even the beliefs of the airmen is covered. Did you know there was hostility between the Yokaren programs? Photos of airmen doing different things, shows equipment & armaments. The are drawings of flights of aircraft in the 1st Shanghai incident, & on the next page drawings of hineri-komi a manuever fighter pilots used, as well as IJN flying formations. Drawings of flight gear, more flight formations,front & rwar positions in type 1 Rikko,a glossary of Japanese terms. Battle history of IJN air forces. Covers alot, but not with to much depth.

Decent read could be more in depth

There is nothing more facinating to read than history through the eyes of the other side.
This book in its brief sixty four pages gives the reader the life of the imperial Japanese naval aviator as best as the author can give.
I enjoyed this book for this capacity.

An excellent addition to the series.

Excellent book for anyone intersted in the training and operational details of the Imperial Japanese Navy. Highly recommended.

I am an enthusiast for the naval-air actions in World War II, and own some 700 books on the subject. I wanted to include this one, if nothing else for the lovely cover illustration. Osprey Publications deserve high praise for their layout, readability, and illustrations.

This is definitely a "beginner's" book, and just touches lightly on its subject. I enjoyed it, but as an "expert" already in the field, I found it covered a lot of ground on the subject but offered little new.

A longer book with more detail would have made it 5 stars, otherwise a good concise account of the organization and training of Japanese aviation in WW2.
