Publishers Description: Why did Japan resort to Kamikaze attacks from air and sea Was it a long-standing policy founded in history or a last-ditch action by a nation facing defeat How were the recruits found and trained Why were trainers held back from missions Did the tactic bring any success How were the raids reported at home and by the enemy What were the views of those who encountered such attacks This volume deals with all these questions. All elements of the aviation and naval actions are described, but the traditions, nationalism and psychologies of the policy are not ignored.
