Written by Martin Caidin from Saburo Sakai's own memoirs and journalist Fred Saito's extensive interviews with the World War II fighter pilot, Samurai! vividly documents the chivalry and valor of the combat aviator who time after time fought American fighter pilots and, with 64 kills, would survive the war as Japan's greatest living ace. Here are the harrowing experiences of one of Japan's greatest aces: from fighter pilot school where the harsh training expelled over half of his class to the thrilling early Japanese victories; from his incredible six hundred mile fight for life from Guadalcanal to his base in Rabaul, to the poignant story of the now-handicapped veteran's return to the air during the final desperate months of World War II.

I first read this book back around 1961 and still remembered some of the more interesting passages causing me to buy a copy today and reread this book. Very interesting as it shows the other side of the war in the Pacific. Not sure if all of the contents are accurate, but still a very interesting account from a Zero pilot.
