Wings of the Rising Sun : Uncovering the Secrets of Japanese Fighters and Bombers of World War II

During the early years of the Pacific War, Japanese air power held dominance, necessitating a thorough understanding by the Allies for strategic advantage. To achieve this, Technical Air Intelligence Units were established in the Pacific Theatre and the Technical Air Intelligence Center in Washington DC. These units conducted extensive flight testing and evaluation of captured Japanese aircraft and equipment, shedding light on their design philosophy and manufacturing practices.

In this illustrated book Mark Chambers explores Allied efforts to assess Japanese air power during the war, aiding their victory in the Pacific. The book includes sections on Allied Technical Air Intelligence Units, flight testing of captured Japanese fighters, bombers, seaplanes, transports, turbojet, and rocket-powered aircraft, as well as evaluations of special weapons. Additionally, it discusses the fate of captured Japanese aircraft, including scrapping, storage by institutions like the Smithsonian, and displays in Great Britain.

Appendices provide a roster of captured test aircraft and key American reports on Japanese aircraft and aerial weapons technologies.

War Prizes - Captured German, Italian and Japanese Aircraft of WWII

This book is a meticulously researched review of the many German, Italian and Japanese aircraft taken to Allied countries or flown by the Allies during or after the Second World War. The hsitory of these captured aircraft has been extensively researched and the book is copiously illustrated by an unrivalled selection of around 500 photographs, gleaned from around the world.

The book's chapters are devoted to chronological themes describing the individual histories of each aircraft and the units which flew them in the USA or France or in specific theatres of war, with a final chapter covering the use made of aircraft in other countries.
Coverage includes civilian aircraft and sailplanes as well as military types; post-war production of German designs and details of surviving aircraft in museums. Appendices and indexes cover designation and marking systems, information sources and other useful background.

The UK chapters include coverage of RAF Farnborough, 1426 (EA) Flight, individual squadrons, experimental organisations and manufacturers, the ATAIU in Malaya and the little-known Gremlin Task Force.
US chapters deal with evaluation at Wright Field, Freeman Field and in Europe by Watson's Whizzers, by the US Navy TAIC at Anacostia, ATAIUs in Australia and the Phillippines and many individual units.
The book also includes the most complete record published of British 'Air Min' and USAAF 'FE' and 'T2' aircraft numbering systems.

This new edition of an acclaimed title first published nearly thirty years ago has been fully revised and updated. The opportunity has been taken to use modern technology to improve the quality of the images and many new photos uncovered since the original publication have been included.
