Ôzora no samurai
The Story of Japan's Greatest Living Zero Fighter

Sakai's autobiography published in Japanese language only. Oozora No Samurai translates to "Samurai in the big sky", which is much longer and more detailed account of his wartime service.

A shorter, abridge, adaptation was written in the english language, Samurai! written with Martin Caiden. The film Ôzora no samurai (1976) is a film adaptation of Saburo Sakai's life story.
