    This was an interesting book It reminded me of 'warbirds' with the wealth of information in the book It is actually two books; this book was 'volume I' It was different from Warbirds in that Warbirds reminded me of an encyclopedia in its format whereas this book was of a narrative format The author definitely knew his technical backgroundI also found it interesting that this author did not necessarily have the same opinion as other authors about certain events The biggest difference I found was in regard to the British attack at Taranto as to whether or not it influenced the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor The majority of the other authors I have read seem to be of the opinion that the success of the British attack on the Italian base had some level of influence on the Japanese decision to attack Pearl Harbor; Polmar was of the opinion that the British attack had no influence on the Japanese attackI did not feel like the book was overwhelming in terms of the technical detail I felt it was a readable book; it held my interest throughout the entire reading It was easy to follow; the font was big enough that it was not difficult to read The small font in 'Warbirds' was one of the few drawbacks of that book This book also included many photographs throughout the book which I felt helped enhance the experience of reading itI enjoyed this book as much as 'Warbirds' and plan on purchasing it and volume II for my personal library at some point
