9780841500884: Divine thunder; the life and death of the kamikazes

In the autumn of 1944, as American forces grew stronger in the Pacific, the Japanese were realizing they were outnumbered and resolved to do something drastic. Drawing from a legend 700 years old, about the gods providing a typhoon (or as they called it a "divine wind") for their protection, the Japanese organized "special attack forces" to provide their own man-made divine thunder..

This is an absorbing account of the Japanese Naval Special Attack Suicide Fliers, the "Kamikazes" - squadrons of airplanes that would purposely crash dive into Allied ships, often with devastating results. Illustrated with photographs, drawings, and a bibliography.
