13th Fighter Command in World War II
Air Combat Over Guadalcanal and the Solomons

Chapter Eight deals with 13th Fighter Command's most famous mission: the April 18, 1943 mission to shoot down Admiral Yamamoto aboard G4M1 Betty 2656 Tail T1-323. This chapter is written by James Lansdale and covers every aspect of this mission from both the American and Japanese sides, plus the kill controversy between Rex Barber and Thomas Lanphier. Evidence reveals Barber as the sole pilot responsible for the shoot down.
