Synopsis

Synopsis

The most produced Japanese bomber of the World War II (1939-1945), the G4M saw action on every front from the first day of the Pacific conflict through to VJ-Day. The 'Betty's' very long range made it a key weapon during the opening year of the war. However, to achieve this, the aircraft was built with very little protective armour for its crew or fuel tanks, and Allied pilots soon exposed its extreme vulnerability. In the first in a series of volumes examining the key Japanese aircraft of WW2, Dr Osamu Tagaya details the G4M's extensive combat history, and lists all the units which operated the bomber.

Praise

"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
