Seafire F III Vs. A6m Zero : Pacific Theatre Paperback / softback
by Jim Laurier
Part of the Duel series
Products of vastly different design philosophies, the Seafire F III and the A6M Zero were never intended to meet in combat, and never should have.
The Zero, extremely nimble at low speeds was purpose built as a shipboard fighter.
In contrast, the Spitfire was intended for operations from established airfields, and needed to be adapted as a carrier fighter.
This book examines these two iconic fighters and their two very different histories, using fantastic artwork and first hand accounts to illustrate the last aerial duel of World War II, as the British Seafire overcame its critics to emerge victorious over the Japanese Zero.
