Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

1940. Hitler wants to rain death on London but he doesn't have the aircraft. Classified info about a new long-range plane — the Japanese "Type Zero" — intrigues Nazi generals who ask their Far Eastern ally for a few prototypes to study. But how to get the planes from Japan to Germany? Unable to fly safely over the Soviet Union or the vast British Empire, maverick Japanese pilots just might make it if they can refuel at the few secret pockets of resistance en route.

Zero Over Berlin is an amazing adventure of dogfights and narrow escapes, geopolitical intrigue (from the other side), and military covert-ops that never were. From Japan's celebrated answer to Tom clancy and Jack Higgins- Joh Sasaki.

Synopsis:

"Zero Over Berlin" is first and foremost an aviation novel, but it is also a thrilling piece of historical fiction that presents the Asian geopolitics of the time with considerable flair.
