About this title


Based on a retrospective at the Admiral Nimitz Museum in Texas, this volume marshals the recollections of American and Japanese aviators and the thoughts of academics to address the military, political, ethical, and historical issues of the famous and controversial wartime special operation that saw the US Air Force intercept and shoot down a bomber carrying the commander-in-chief of the Japanese Combined Fleet.
