The new larger format second edition of the first English language book to describe in detail the aircraft used by Japans extensive submarine fleet during World War Two. More than any other nation, Japan designed, built and operated aircraft launched from submarines, using them for reconnaissance and also (uniquely) for bombing and attack missions. This fascinating history of an under-published aspect of World War Two aviation warfare is illustrated with photographs, scale plans and full colour illustrations. The book includes 200 photographs (many of which not been published before) and 30 original colour profiles (plus top and bottom views) of representative aircraft. It also features colour photographs of preserved Aichi M6A Seiran aircraft.
