Overview

Written by Martin Caidin from Saburo Sakai's own memoirs and journalist Fred Saito's extensive interviews with the fighter pilot, Samauir! vividly documents the chivalry and valor of Saburo Sakai, the combat aviator who time after time fought American fighter pilots and, with 64 kills, would survive the war as Japan's greatest living ace.

Here are the harrowing experiences of one of Japan's greatest aces: from fighter pilot school—where the harsh training expelled over half of his class—to the thrilling early Japanese victories; from his incredible six hundred mile fight for life from Guadalcanal to his base in Rabaul, to the poignant story of the now-handicapped veteran's return to the air during the final desperate months of World War II.

If your your a person who likes a action packed war story then this book is for you! Also I think this book offers a interesting look of WWII on from the enemy's point of view.

    THE BOOK THAT STARTED IT ALL FOR ME !!

    This was the first book I read about WW II fighter combat (back in 1985). And it is still fresh. Sakai was the greatest living Japanese ace of WW II (although aerial claims was somewhat confused for the Japanese) Suprisingly, witht he help of Martin Caidin, his style is clear, conscise e enjoyable for the reader. The action is the most impressive, without sounding an exageration. Very good!
