During the final days of World War II, the U.S. Navy faced their worst nightmare; the kamikaze. Special Attack Kamikaze Units became Japan's primary weapon against the U.S Navy in 1945. At Okinawa, their battle cry would be "One man, one ship." Massive attacks by hundreds of planes became their preferred tactic. Sailors watched in horror as kamikazes carrying a 500-pound bomb crashed and exploded on their ships. It was incomprehensible to Americans that men would voluntarily die to deliver death and destruction. Kamikazes created a terror greater than anything the Navy had ever faced. "Kamikaze Terror" describes the epic air/sea battles at Okinawa. You'll learn new details about ships and sailors who fought and died during this last great battle of the war. Read the personal accounts of shipmates from the Hadley, Laffey, Bache, Drexler, Aaron Ward, The Sullivans, Bunker Hill, Bennington, plus amphibs, hospital ships and a dozen more.
