This book represents the first serious attempt to detail for Western readers the evolution of Japanese military aviation. It has been no easy task, originating from a carefully prepared and meticulous manuscript in hand-written Japanese characters, which needed painstaking translation and careful editing to reveal in easily readable form its fascinating story. It is no exaggeration to state that despite Japan's long-term involvement in air warfare against China during the late s, so called military experts in the West still held to a belief that Japanese military aircraft were little better than inferior copies of obsolete foreign designs. Pearl Harbour was to bring a painful realisation of their lack of knowledge, an urgent need for a complete reappraisal of the enemy's potential, and vindication for the few individuals, championed by America's 'Billy' Mitchell, who had been able to envisage the desperation of Japan's militarist leaders. Eiichiro Sekigawa not only gives a clear insight into the development of that country's aviation industry, but shows the political and economic reasons that, rightly or wrongly, led the nation to war against the West in The first volume brings the story to that point, some six months after Pearl Harbour, when Japan's 'Co-prosperity Sphere' had exploded across the face of the Pacific.

The business model of the company was to encourage book buying in the retail marketplace by signing customers on to memberships of book selling syndicates, wherein they could buy mass market published books at a substantially reduced price rate compared to the same books' sale prices in high street retail outlets. The drawback was that in exchange for this reduced price, customers or book club "members" , in joining a syndicate signed a legal contract agreeing to purchase a minimum number of books from titles' lists offered by BCA each year, this way compensating BCA for the lower prices by sales volume.
