The 100th title of Osprey's celebrated Aircraft of the Aces series covers a subject sure to be of interest to historians of World War II. The Ki-44 'Tojo' was a fast-climbing, heavily armed point-defence interceptor that was used successfully in slashing hit-and-run tactics that caught Allied pilots by surprise. In the air defense role 'Tojos' pioneered the deployment of a unique 40 mm cannon, the firing system which had no cartridges but instead had the propelling charge contained in the base of the projectile. The Ki-44 was to be used by the JAAF in larger numbers in China than anywhere else. This exciting title from author Nicholas Millman brings the Ki-44's role in the Pacific theatre to vivid life, accompanied by full color plates and archival photographs.

Talk about Ki-44 ‘Tojo’ Aces of World War 2 (Aircraft of the Aces)

Nicholas Millman has written a great volume about the Ki-44's combat record in World War II. Navigating through an area of history replete with holes and misinformation, he has put together a concise narrative that both makes sense and is enjoyable to read. I was surprised to read that both the AVG and the CATF encountered the Ki-44 in combat long before it was recognized in the summer/fall of 1943. What I most like about the book is that Millman does solid research on both the Japanese and Allied sides, leaving the reader with a sense that the subject was treated fairly. He does not attempt to oversell the aircraft or its combat record. It is apparent, however, that the Japanese suffered for producing this formidable aircraft in such small numbers and for not having a more robust pilot training program throughout the war. Despite a rude shock to the Americans when the Ki-44 dominated the skies over China during the summer and fall of 1943, these deficiencies eventually spelled the downfall of the Japanese air forces.

Nicholas Millman is a well respected historian with his own blog on the topic of WWII Japanese aviation. His new title on the Ki-44 is, in this person's estimation, the finest volume yet in the Osprey "Aces" series.

The book is a wonderful combination of history, background information, period photography, and also incredibly well done art profiles, which allow the reader to understand both the aircraft, and the men who flew the Ki-44, in an objective light.

The story of the struggle against B-29 raids is both compelling, and fascinating. The author touches on the topics of night fighting techniques, as well as the use of air dropped bombs against the Superfortress formations. Also of note is the information on the limited use of the Ki-44 in Burma, by units primarily equipped with the Ki-43 Hayabusa.

I can heartily recommend this volume to anyone with even a passing interest in WWII Japanese aviation.

Osprey's 'Aircraft of the Aces' series hits the #100 milestone with this absolutely first-rate history of the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force aces who flew Nakajima's Ki-44 'Shoki' interceptor. Prior to Nicholas Millman's KI-44 'TOJO' ACES OF WORLD WAR 2, little information on the stubby, fast-climbing Ki-44 has been available in English-language publications. Happily, 'Aircraft of the Aces #100' rectifies that situation in splendid fashion.

Developed in 1939, the Shoki's design flew in the face of the IJAAF dogfighter tradition. A tough, speedy, hard-climbing, heavily-armed 'heavy fighter,' the Ki-44 was built in limited numbers but saw combat over every South-east Asia front except New Guinea and was a major player in Home Defense ops against B-29s. Eighteen pilots scored all or some of their kills flying the stubby Nakajima fighter.

A member of the Pacific Air War History Associates, Millman does an excellent job of summarizing the Ki-44's development and war record over China, Burma, the East Indies, the Philippines and the Home Islands. Thanks to in-depth research, he is able to match up Japanese claims versus actual Allied losses.

The text is complimented by over 80 b&w photographs and Ronnie Olsthoorn's color profiles and cover artwork. Olsthoorn's work is superlative; I hope Osprey makes more use of his talents.

Pacific air war enthusiasts will enjoy KI-44 'TOJO' ACES OF WORLD WAR 2. The blend of authoritative text, imagery and artwork makes for a great addition to the Osprey 'Aces' series. Make no mistake about it; this is one impressive book! Highly recommended.

The color profiles in this book are alone worth the cover price. Some of the finest artwork in this entire series. The book is also well written. If you have an interest in WW2 Japanese aircraft, the Japanese aces I highly recommend buying it.

Good book about a forgotten aircraft and the aces who flew it.

What a pity to see that personal grudges and pure jealousy can unjustifiably spill into an online review. Nicholas Millmann is at the forefront of accurate camouflage, markings, and paint analysis. Anyone with a serious interest in WW2 aircraft in general or with a specialised interest in Japanese aircraft will find that this book is a worthy addition to their book shelf. The artwork and profiles contained in this Osprey title are truly second to none and are worth the cover price alone. You will not be disappointed... Well done to all involved.

This is a mediocre book by any measurement. The print is so small you need a very good reading lamp if reading in the evening. It is a small, thin and cheaply produced book full of rehashed content. I can't help but be suspect of the glowing reviews of this book. I believe they are from Nicholas Millman and some of his aquantances.
Good book
