B-29 Hunters of the JAAF Paperback / softback
Illustrated by Tom Tullis, Jim Laurier
Part of the Osprey Aviation Elite S. series
'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.
