B-29 Hunters of the JAAF by Henry Sakaida
Book Description'B-29!' No other term struck such terror in the hearts of the Japanese public during World War 2 than this single, most-hated name. It was then only natural that the pilots who attempted to shoot these high-flying Boeing bombers out of the skies over Tokyo, Nagasaki, Hiroshima and Kobe should become known as the elite of the Japanese Army Air Force. This book details the exploits of the 'Dragon Slayers' who, flying the very latest single- and twin-engined fighters, exacted a heavy toll on the AAF Boeing bombers, using a range of tactics including ramming.

Author Biography - Henry Sakaida
A third generation Japanese American (Sansei) Henry Sakaida has spent much of his life researching the shadowy history of the Japanese fighter pilot. His eye for detail and his exhaustive research have led to his being given access to much archive material by former aces who have remained silent since the end of the war. Tom Tullis has illustrated a number of books in both the Aces and Combat Aircraft series, and was the first artist to produce material for Osprey Aviation electronically. Jim Laurier graduated with honours from the Paiers School of Art, Connecticut and has worked as a freelance illustrator ever since. Jim is a Fellow of the American Society of Aviation Artists, the New York Society of Illustrators and the American Fighter Aces Association.
