This is not a matter of isolated typographical errors. It is a
serious case for the comma police, since the book’s war on
punctuation is almost as heated as the air assaults it describes.
“One would have to be dead, very stupid Fuchida thought,” the book
says about the fighter pilot Mitsuo Fuchida, “not to realize they
were sallying forth to war.” Evidence notwithstanding, the authors
do not mean to insult the fighter pilot’s intelligence — or,
presumably, the reader’s.
