Combat Aircraft 22. Short code: COM 22. Publication Date: 25 Apr 2001. The son of a former officer in the Japanese Naval Air Technical Arsenal, Osamu Tagaya has written a number of books on Japanese aircraft, principally for the Smithsonian Institute. Mark has illustrated several books in both the Aces and Combat Aircraft series. He has recently switched mediums from airbrush to Mac art, and has produced some of the best profiles Osprey has ever used. Iain Wyllie is one of Britain's foremost aviation artists.

Among the major participants of World War 2, Japan was unique in having its strategic air striking capabilities in the hands of its naval air arm rather than in those of its army (or air force) counterpart. Although it had not begun life in that position, the air service of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) had, by the beginning of the Pacific War, superseded the Imperial Army’s air corps as the nation’s larger, more modern and more potent air force.

Osamu Tagaya, Mark Rolfe, Iain Wyllie. 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.

I had never read much about the Betty units and did not know how much action they had seen in World War 2. This book gives a good starting point on how they were organized and deployed.

Only 2 left in stock (more on the way). I had never read much about the Betty units and did not know how much action they had seen in World War 2. It also gives a good idea of the futility of just throwing away lives on missions that had little or no chance of success.

Range of a B-25: 1500 miles. Range of a Betty: 3500 miles. Bomb loads: The Betty beat all the others. This book tells the story of one of the greatest planes ever made. "Butch" O'Hare (they named an airport after him) shot down a bunch of Bettys and got a Medal of Honor for doing it. Aviation/Military nuts: Buy this book.

Book covers the development of the aircraft and its deployment in WW2. The units that operated this aircraft are mentioned. With the destruction of the japanese naval air arm you can see the number of units operating this typr of aircraft dwindling.

Unfortunately we have few sources of information about the history of Japanese twin-engine bomber units of World War II. This book fills, at worst partially, this gap. Recommend to all who appreciate the history of military aviation and the history of World War II.

If you're buying this to made a 3D model for a flight sim and you want information on the interior, bombsight, or internal structure then you will be dissapointed. With the exception of the colour plates, which are all side views, the rest of the images are black and white. The 3-views in the back are faint and do not have wing fillets nor does the fueselage. It is still worth having for the information but will not address all of your Betty questions.

Interesting to learn of th different thought process of two opposing countries on their way to protect their Flight Crews.

I expected a lot more technical information and details of the plane's flight characteristics. The book is a rather superficial overview of the bomber and the units that were equipped with them. It would have been nice to have included interviews with surviving crewmembers. There is little mention or information about surviving planes. I am fairly certain the Chinese have one in their aviation museum and I know the Garber center has parts of one.

I thoroughly enjoyed the author's other Osprey titles, Val Units and IJN Airmen, so I was not surprised to find this book well written and highly informative. It does an excellent job of succinctly covering the Betty units of the IJN during the war in the Pacific. The book makes it clear how the impressive range and ordnance carrying capacity of the Betty was vital to Japan's successful offensives at the beginning of the war. He also makes it clear how the vulnerabilities of the Betty design led to unacceptable losses once the Japanese ran into more formidable defenses.

There were only a few negatives. There were a some minor errors in ship identification, for example the USS Charleston was a patrol gunboat not a light cruiser as the author identifies it. The color plates are limited to page after page of side silhouettes of the Betty in different camouflage schemes, with no action scenes. The modeler will undoubtedly find that of value but this non-modeler did not. Most annoying was the complete lack of maps. I found myself constantly digging out other books to find locations cited in the text.

All in all, a solid piece of work. Recommended.
