This second volume focuses exclusively on confrontations with the Japanese Navy Air Force (JNAF) in New Guinea and the Solomons, known to the Japanese as the “South Seas”. Never before have detailed accounts been matched up adversaries so closely and in doing so shine light on key events in Pacific skies so many years ago. Often the actual outcomes are very different to the exaggerated claims made by both sides upon which many traditional histories have relied to date. For each of the chosen stories photographic or other evidence enables an accurate depiction of the aircraft involved. Through these chosen snapshots Pacific Adversaries portrays the South Pacific conflict as accurately as possible.
