The Aichi Val was the principal dive bomber for the Japanese fleet scoring considerable successes against American and British warships. From the attack on Pearl Harbour to the Kamikaze raids in the closing stages of the war, it was a potent weapon.
Using official records and the testimony of the men that designed and flew the Val, Peter Smith has assembled a fine and detailed work that will appeal to historians and modellers.
