Maybe 5 publications in medical journals (English language journals only).

Do you know how many children McCampbell had ?

I know of two sons: One joined the Navy but did not get into aviation. Looked like his old man. He visited me once.

Re: Tetauzo Iwamoto

Good morning Luftwaffle8,

it's cool you knew McCampbell.
This website
http://acepilots.com/usn_mccampbell.html
indicates that he was married only four times.
Should this be corrected or could you imagine he exaggerated his marriage score to become a wedding-ace ? ;-)
Do you know what his "lenghty illness" from which he died, was ?

Kind regards,

Michael

Re: Tetauzo Iwamoto

Good morning Gentlemen,

OSPREY will publish a Zero volume in the Aircraft of the Aces series next April:
https://www.amazon.de/Zero-sen-Aces-...=a6m+zero+aces
I hope it'll make definite statements about the scores of Iwamoto, Nishizawa and Sakai.

Cheers,

Michael

Every nation overclaimed. Look at the insane claims bomber crews claimed. Those claims, like most a ludicrous.

Re: Tetauzo Iwamoto

I'm a bit disappointed because the new Zero book by OSPREY
https://www.amazon.de/Zero-Sen-Aces-...gateway&sr=8-1
mostly adopts the scores indicated by Hata, Izawa & Shores.

Well of course--it's not like they can follow a diving aircraft down trailing exhausts if they think they succeed in hitting it! Not to mention that if you're talking about bomber gunners you've probably got every gunner in the whole formation all claiming they hit an aircraft that actually got destroyed.

Let's take a more 'rational' approach, and stick to 'pursuit pilot' and their claims

Re: Tetauzo Iwamoto

One fellow wrote that Iwamoto's 216+16sh kills are rather "attacks" than shootdowns. But the score of 80 indicated by Hata, Izawa & Shores is an arbritrary figure, isn't it ?
