Kamikazes by Edwin P. Hoyt

Book Description

Here is a powerful, incisive portrait of the men who carried out the Japanese suicide missions during the Pacific campaign of World War II. The story of these superbly trained, fiercely loyal, and recklessly courageous pilots is drawn with rare breadth and dimension, a brilliant recreation of one of war's most surreal and frightening episodes.
