Operational history is hard to come by, however, the first two books listed below does a very good job at getting unit histories, followed by the third book which is a good reference source for technical data:

1) Japanese Army Air Force Fighter Units and Their Aces 1931-1945 (Ikuhiko Hata, Yasuho Izawa, and Christopher Shores)

2) Japanese Naval Aces and Fighter Units in World War II (Ikuhiko Hata, Yasuho Izawa - translated by Don Cyril Gorham)

3) Japanese Aircraft of the Pacific War (Rene Francillon)

All books are available through Amazon.com
