9780582772328: Kamikaze: Japan's Suicide Gods
Review:

'the book's depiction of the Kamikaze themselves - using quotations from their diaries and letters - is both initimate and fascinating, not to say tragic' Saul David, "The Sunday Telegraph" 'This account of the kamikazes is powerfully gripping...Their dedication is a mystery to the western mind, but all too close to the behaviour of the al-Qaeda flyers on 11 September." J G Ballard, "The New Statesman" 'What motivated Japanese pilots to fly planes on suicide missions against Allied ships during World War II? This book gives part of the answer'. "Daily Mail" 'A fascinating study' "Bolton Evening News"

From the Publisher:

The use of the Japanese Kamikaze pilots during the second world war was one of the most dramatic and chilling developments of the war. But who were the Kamikaze pilots and what motivated them to make the ultimate sacrifice? The call for Kamikaze pilots drew a staggering response. Three times as many applied for suicide flights as the number of planes available. The authors of Kamikaze: Japan's Suicide Gods look into the hearts and minds of the Kamikaze pilots, viewed in the full context of the war and the Japanese cultures and traditions out of which the Kamikaze emerged. Based on interviews with Kamikaze survivors, unpublished memoirs, and documents not previously open to the public, the book portrays one of the most extraordinary and astonishing events in history, an event that has made Kamikaze a household word around the world.

Summary: Kamikaze pilots have become incredibly topical since the suicide missions of September 11 - this book traces direct link Contains loads of original material, interviews and new sources - includes excerpts from never-before published suicide manual Uncovers documents relating to British RAF missions which pretty much amounted to suicide missions. Gripping real-life stories of life & death - survivors who have lived to tell the tale Second World War - is one of the biggest sectors in history retail market The use of Kamikaze pilots was one of the most dramatic and chilling developments of the Second World War. But who were the kamikaze pilots and what motivated them to give the ultimate sacrifice? Why was the practice initiated by the Japanese air force? This is the untold story of a remarkable development in military and world history. In this gripping account, Albert Axell explains that Kamikaze pilots were part of the national military policy of Japan during the2nd World War. He writes that Japanese Vice Admiral Takashiro Ohnishi noted that the most effective way to inflict damage to warships was to crash planes into them. Those attacks took the American fleet completely by surprise - they were bewildered by the suicide missions and completely unable to comprehend the mentality behind them. We learn, however, that the call for kamikaze pilots drew a staggering response, with three times as many volunteers for suicide flights as the number of planes available. "Kamikaze: The Untold Story" sheds light on the world of the Kamikaze pilots, where they came from, what they were thinking about, how they looked at life and death, what they did in theirlast hours. Albert Axell has done historical research in China, Japan, Mongolia and Russia and has written several books about these countries. He also observed the Vietnam War as a journalist. During the Cold War years he met John. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_058277232X
