The Divine Wind: Japan's Kamikaze Force in World War II

By Captain Rikihei Inoguchi and Commander Tadashi Nakajima with
United States Naval Institute, 1958
240 pp. $4.50
Purchase

A most absorbing account of the Kamikaze special attack corps. Although unable, at the late stage of the war, to turn the tide, and of debatable military value, the suicide divers demonstrated a quite unique form of personal heroism: men looking forward to a death "as sudden and clean as the shattering of crystal."
