This week's BAOTW is from Japan

Hiromichi Shinohara
The highest-scoring fighter ace of the Japanese Army Air Force in World War II (indeed, in the history of the JAAF) never, at any point in his career, engaged a single American aircraft.  He also died two years before the attack on Pearl Harbor.

This guys shot down 58 enemy aircraft during his THREE MONTH career! No wonder they keep making Macross movies! People like this actually existed in Japan!

Man I love that website. It's so inspiring.
