"If the "Zero" is the best known Japanese fighter of WWII, it is the "Betty" that gets that distinction in the bomber category. Despite this fame, little is published in english about the stories of the aircrews and missions they preformed. Readers learn about its design, operations, and stories of its crews, from the first days of the Pacific war, until the very end of the Japanese empire... For anyone interested in greater detail into the Japanese side of the Betty bomber story, and details on its crews and operations through WWII, this book is sure to impress and inform." -"www.pacificwrecks.com"
