For the first time in the English language, authors Henry Sakaida and Koji Takaki tell the story of the Imperial Japanese Navy's famed 343 Kokutai. Formed in December 1944 and commanded by Captain Minoru Genda, the mastermind behind the raid on Pearl Harbor, The authors have spent years tracing and interviewing former pilots of both the 343 Kokutai as well as from the American carrier and bomber groups which they encountered to piece together this dramatic story and tell it largely from the personal perspective. This unique story is accompanied by 300 remarkable photographs, most being published for the first time in an English language book.
