"The Cockpit" & "Battlefield"

So this is a anime from Leiji Matsumoto that tells three tales of pilots in WWII from his "Battleground" manga series.  "Kawajiri's "Slipstream" follows a Luftwaffe pilot on his mission to protect Germany's trump card: the world's first atomic bomb.  Imanishi's Sonic Boom Squadron explores the last hours of a Yokosuka MXY7 Ohka pilot on August 6, 1945.  Takahashi's Knight of the Iron Dragon tells the story of two Japanese soldiers in Leyte as they attempt to keep a promise."  It's normal Japanese fare so if that's you kind thing give the anime a go below.
Not bad,
