At the end of '44, Japan came out with several new fighters to improve on the getting older " Zero". These were fully competitive with our Navy's best, but little was known about them at the time. Fortunately, they were not numerous, as production was hindered by our B-29 attacks.
I was in the forward area in an F6F Hellcat squadron, and we were given very scanty info about them, probably because we didn't have it. The creator explained that in some cases, Corsairs in dogfights with them did not know what their opponent was., Despite horrendous losses in aircraft, pilots, and manufacturing facilities, the Japanese continued to improve their fighter airplane right into the concluding months of the 2nd World War. The Ki-84 " Frank" was a considerable improvement over earlier Japanese fighters, meant to match up with enhanced versions of the F4 Corsair being flown by the U. S. Navy blue and Marine Corps in the Pacific theater. Writer Edward Young provides a fascinating narrative of the development of the F4U Corsair and the Ki-84 Frank, and their fights over Okinawa and Japan.
This is an Osprey Duel Series book, packed with period photographs, illustrations, and break-away diagrams. The particular author does his best to sort out the confusion of air combat in particular associated with the end of the war in Japan generally speaking. There is a full run-down on the specifications of both aircraft, but of course the most interesting part is their face to face competition. The particular author's conclusions are not surprising but are nuanced and well worth reading. Strongly recommended to students of World War II aviators., Really enjoyed this publication. Although I was acquainted with the Frank, the aircraft had never been put into a " chronology" for me before and it also wasn't until We read this book that We fully understood that the Ki-84 was such a late-comer to WWII. The particular difference in pilot quality at the end of the war was too much for it to overcome. Recommended!, An wonderful publication once again! An in depth (real heavy! ) analysis!! OF BOTH EQUALLY SIDES!!! Detailing ENGINE, AIRFRAME, ARMAMENT's, Even the VERY important combatant training..., I loved this and located it easy to read; I though the author did a fine job in comparing these two aeroplanes and the pilots who flew them.
My interest in the Corsair is because my father travelled them with the RNZAF in the Solomon Islands in 1944-45 and while the Corsair in NZ service did not have air to air combat, it is very interesting to contemplate what might have been!, I follow the Osprey series (especially on WW II aircraft) and also this is one fine and highly informative edition to add to my intensive collection of Osprey quantities. I have collected and read so many over the years. Thank you for keeping our history alive!
