Just to get more flavour and background, I was looking at "The First Team". Moderately pricey...can anyone recommend it?

Most definately. You probably won't find a more thorough, detailed account. The sequal is up to the same standard.

Many thanks for the reply, Mr. Nakajima. Between this and the WitP forum I knew someone would have read it...PF forum wins...

Best 2 books ever on the naval air war from pearl to November 1942. Bar none. Buy both.

I'll go get the first volume and see how I get along. Far more detailed I expect than my current (re)read of "Fire In The Sky" which I still think is a good read and gives a ton of background to the early air war. Interesting writeups on aircraft in there.
