Pretty interesting story, I've read Saburo Sakai and Eric Brown talk favorably about the A6M, but it sounds like the army fighter, the Ki-43, was not up to the task. You would need some courage to have to fight American planes when you cant trust your own equipment.

Thanks for posting this.

Interviews from the Japanese side, especially from an eager Aviator and Ace, obviously into the subject, are rare.
