their former adversaries.
|Koga's Zero: The Fighter That Changed World War II
By Jim Reardon
Found upside down in an Alaskan bog in the eighth month of

flown by U.S. pilots in San Diego. Knowledge gained from those flights ended
the dominance of the Zero in the Pacific. This booth contains interviews,
photos and personal accounts of many of the people involved in this
|Cracking the Zero Mystery:
How the U.S. Learned to Beat Japan's Vaunted WWII Fighter
By Jim Reardon
For six months after Pearl Harbor the nimble Japanese Zero-sen
plane dominated the Pacific air war. Then, on June 4, 1942 a Zero crashed on
tiny Akutan Island in the Aleutians. It lay there for five weeks until
spotted by an American plane. Hauled back to California, the Zero revealed
its secrets in a series of tests and analyses. Fast, but lacking protection
for the pilot as well as a self-sealing gas tank which all U.S. planes had,
the Zero lost its predominance for the rest of the war. Rearden tells for
the first time in detail the exciting events leading to this crucial
intelligence breakthrough, as important as the breaking of the Japanese
naval code. An appendix analyzes the vital statistics of the Zero versus
U.S. planes. [Review by Robert Stenzel, Reed Business Information]
