In the last days of World War II, a new and baffling weapon terrorised the US Navy in the Pacific. To the sailors who learned to fear them, the body-crashing warriors of Japan were known as suiciders'; among the Japanese, they were named for a divine wind that once saved their homelands from invasion: kamikaze. Told from the perspective of men who endured this horrifying tactic, this is the first book to recount in nail-biting detail what it was like to experience an attack by Japanese kamikazes, drawing on personal interviews and unprecedent research.'
