He has interviewed many former IJN pilots including Saburo Sakai, Sudamu Komaichi, and Masajiro Kawato. Gary lives in Lakewood, California. Bill Younghusband was born in 1936. He has been interested in all things military since childhood, an interest compounded through the reading of authors such as G. A. Henty.

Bill is a respected military illustrator of many years' experience, and for this title contributes the detailed insignia illustrations. He is married, and lives in Ireland.
