." . . he book is well worth reading and adds yet another title to Osprey's catalog of fine books." - Modeling Madness"As a long time student of the A6M Zero-sen, I am very enthusiastic about this book and highly recommend it." - KitMaker Network"I do highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the Zero. For those who already have other references on the subject, this book breaks things down into a compact 'quick glance' summary that is concise and well laid out. For those new to the Zero, this title does a nice job of really explaining the A6M variants and variations that even the non-modeler/historian can follow." - IPMS/USA
