Renowned aviation historian, Barrett Tillman, has done a concise yet exhaustive job of research of the famed Marianas Turkey Shoot, the greatest air battle of the Pacific war. Because of in depth interviews much of the story is told by participants. These exciting accounts are augmented by Tillman's analysis.

This large format book also provides both U.S. Navy and Japanese order of battle down to squadron level for both carrier and shore based aircraft. One map, 47 photos, six air brush profiles of Hellcats, Avengers, Dauntlesses, Zeros, Judys and Vals (all by John Valo) provide a wealth of visual history. Final appendices supply losses and U.S. Navy aerial combat claims for this historic engagement of carrier aircraft.
