Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Design for the "Nell" (Allied code name) began in 1933. Several years of testing led to deployment in 1937. The best feature of this plane was the long range, which certainly helped in the location and sinking of Task Force Z, the British Ships (Prince of Wales and Repulse). By 1943, the Nells were no longer being used as bombers and were put into service as transports. Just under 1,000 of these medium bomber/transports were built.

38 pages of narrative, 14 pages of what unit served where (not important in my mind, would rather see additional analysis of what made this a good or bad plane), 2 pages of data. So why three stars? No line drawings showing the planes features, no color plates showing the camoflague schemes. At this price, there should be. It detracts from the value for a modeler.

Not much has been written in English on Japanese planes in the west. This will have to do until someone realizes there is an eager market looking for better material on aircraft that served in Japanese service.

This book covers the development of the G3M as well as a brief outline of it's battle history. It's loaded with photos ( some are a little grainy ) many of which I have never seen. At the back there is a short listing of the units, that flew the G3M & a short unit history of each one. Many of these units were later decimated during the Guadalcanal Campaign. A good book to add to any ww2 aviation library.

In addition to providing a wealth of information about the Nell, this is one of the few books that offers a summary of the air war between Japan and China before December 1941.
