AUTHOR PROFILE

portraitRon Werneth was born in Chicago, Illinois and has been researching about World War II Japanese Naval aviators and mechanics for over a decade.  Since the late 1990s, he has been a regular contributor to aviation journals in the United States, Europe and New Zealand.  After doing many years of exhaustive research and moving to Japan, the author was able to meet and befriend the last surviving WW II Japanese Navy pilots and mechanics.  During his three-year stay in Japan he was able to uncover an unprecedented amount of never before published first-hand veteran accounts and photographs.  He also has been a long-time collector of WW II Japanese Navy flying gear and aviation-related artifacts.  The author currently lives in Chicago, Illinois with his wife Kaori and their pets, a Labrador Retriever and an Eclectus Parrot.
