“This singularly splendid study of an oft-neglected topic superbly supplements MMP's earlier volumes on Imperial Japanese submarine-based aircraft and the Kugisho E14Y "Glen". It deserves, in short, special space in every Pacific War enthusiast's library... Robustly recommended!”

- Cybermodeler

“The text is quite descriptive, photos are plentiful (including many previously unpublished), and there are some nice color profiles and 3-views to boot. Anyone interested in Japanese aircraft of the Pacific War should have this one in his or her library. From the well-known to the more arcane, there is great coverage of the aircraft and systems dedicated to anti-sub warfare by the Japanese during WW2.”
