About this product
- DescriptionRyuji Nagatsuka did t kw, 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 phemen of the hostilities - that of a suicide pilot, kwn 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.
- Author BiographyRyuji Nagatsuka joined the Imperial Japanese Army in 1944 and was trained as a kamikaze pilot.
