The Last Zero Fighter by Dan King. Published by Pacific Press. The author interviewed over 100 surviving WW11 Japanese Naval pilots to give a remarkable insight into the Japanese naval aviator. From cadet training to the end of conflict. Illustrated with photos from the aviators themselves and the author plus maps. It is very readable and I would suggest compulsory reading for anyone with more than a passing interest in the Pacific theatre of operations in WW11.
