About the Author

Mark Lardas has been fascinated by things related to the sea and sky his entire life. From building models of ships and aircraft as a teen, his maritime interest led him to study Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, but his interest in aviation led him to take a job on the then-new Space Shuttle program. Over the next 30 years he worked as a navigation engineer on the Shuttle program. Currently he works developing commercial aircraft systems as a quality assurance manager. He has written extensively about aircraft and warships and is the author of 25 books, all related to military, naval or maritime history.


"Many interesting photographs, beautiful two pages combat paintings, maps all to please both the historian and the modeler. This promises to be a great series for those interested in not only the events covered but the rationale behind how they were conducted. I recommend this book to all!" - IPMS / USA ..".an excellent read, filled with original artwork, maps, illus-trations (by Mark Postlethwaite), and historical photographs. For readers interested in the aircraft and strategies used in the South Pacific theater of World War II, this 96-page paperback lays out the events and engagements between the U.S. Navy air combat units and the Japanese air forces." - Flight Journal
