About the Author

Ron Werneth has been interviewing American military veterans and recording their stories since he was a teenager. For more than twenty-five years, he has made it his personal mission to record and preserve the stories of World War II veterans from all sides of the conflict. Embarking on a two decade journey that includedliving in Japan for several years, he succeeded in meeting and interviewing the last surviving Japanese WWII Navy pilots and aircraft mechanics. For many, this was their the first opportunity to share their stories - especially with English-language readers. In 2008, Ron Werneth published "Beyond Pearl Harbor: The Untold Stories of Japan's Naval Airmen", considered to be a groundbreaking book on World War II aviation. Ron Werneth has contributed regularly to numerous aviation and historical publications in the United States, Europe and around the world. Ron Werneth lives in Chicago with his wife and daughter.


"It was as if the vet was talking directly to me!" - Henry Sakaida "Those of us who seek to learn more about [WW2] owe Ron Werneth a great debt for his lifelong devotion to getting to know some of these remarkable men..." - John B. Lundstrom, author of The First Team "A second superb book from a superb researcher." - Jon Parshall, author and historian "...a unique perspective that few Western historians could ever hope to gain." - Bruce Gamble, author and historian
