Michael Claringbould is a renown Pacific War author. This is his first attempt at getting away from conventional formats, instead producing an entertaining hybrid tale; a garishly illustrated yet historically accurate telling of the diary of Imperial Japanese Navy floatplane pilot Warrant Officer Nemoto Kumesako, dating from the early months of the Pacific War. His recollections offer an intimate perspective into his life, along with insights into Japanese thinking of the times. Unusually, these memoirs are presented in a style consistent with the Japanese manga (illustrated cartoon) format.
