Pacific Profiles Volume One Japanese Army Fighters New Guinea & the Solomons 1942-1944

Michael Claringbould, full colour, fully illustrated, 250 x 176mm, 104 pages, Avonmore Books, 2020. ISBN 9780648665915

The Pacific Profiles series presents the most accurate WWII aircraft profiles to date of Japanese aircraft in the "South Seas" theatre.

Volume One illustrates, by unit, Japanese Army Air Force fighter aircraft operating in New Guinea and the Solomons from December 1942 to April 1944. In this theatre numerous different aircraft types and their variants were assigned to eleven fighter regiments which eventually formed the 4th Air Army. Unit insignia, camouflage and command markings varied from unit to unit, giving a wide variety of colour and markings. The profiles, based on photos, Japanese documents, Allied intelligence reports and post-war wreck investigations, are accompanied by brief histories of each relevant unit and explanations of their role in the theatre.

The author, Michael Claringbould, is world-renown for his expertise in respect to wartime Japanese aviation. These profiles accurately portray Japanese Army Air Force fighters during this fascinating and esoteric component of the Pacific air war.
