Summary
"The combats between the Boeing B-29 Superfortress and the Nakajima Ki-44 "Tojo" in the last 14 months of World War II represented a lethal struggle between the world's most advanced self-defending bomber and Japan's most heavily armed single-seat fighter. For the B-29 gunners, the Ki-44 could be a formidable opponent. When fitted with two 40mm cannon, the fighteer required just a one or two second burst to destroy a Superfortress. However, in every respect, the Ki-44 pilots were fighting a desperate battle. Many who made their mark did so by deliberately ramming the B-29 or by stalking them at night at low altitude without the benefit of radar. ... This book examines why the Ki-44 was unable to break up bomber formations conventionally during the Pacific war, and how Japanese suicidal tactics, while terrifying, graphically revealed their inability to stop the B-29." -- Back cover
