Indeed an eagerly awaited and important book. Definitely looking forward to add this to my collection.
I will be most interested in learning about Japanese effort on trying to stop the very effective US Navy submarine campaign.
While including a multitude of interesting aircraft I'm especially looking forward to the rightfully cover decorating Q1W Tokai and the Kayaba autogiro.
The only drawback to me right now is the softcover format, which isn't diminishing my enthusiasm.
