Synopsis: Ryuji Nagatsuka did not know, when he made an application to become a pilot in October 1943, that by the following autumn Japan’s situation in the war would be so critical that the role for which he was destined would be part of the most incomprehensible phenomenon of the hostilities that of a suicide pilot, known to the world as a kamikaze. He and his fellow kamikaze pilots had to be highly trained to crash exactly on target and to evade dense anti-aircraft fire. In this way, thirteen US warships were sunk, and 174 damaged, in the Battle of Okinawa. Here, in this extraordinary document, Nagatsuka gives us a unique insight into what it was that enabled these young men to die for their country in such a way and to do so willingly.

About the Author: Ryuji Nagatsuka joined the Imperial Japanese Army in 1944 and was trained as a kamikaze pilot.

Book Description MacMillan Publishing, New York, 1974. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First American Edition. 212 pages, plates, cloth, DJ, very good. From Bill Gordon's website on Kamikaze Images: "In I Was a Kamikaze, author Ryuji Nagatsuka recounts his fears and inner struggles as he faced impending death. This author's contemplation of death has a philosophical tone, but at times he seems to be looking back on past events rather than describing his feelings and opinions during the war. . . Nagatsuka's in-depth account of his fears and inner struggles as he faces impending death makes I Was a Kamikaze a valuable primary source to understand the psychology of the kamikaze pilots. ".
