US Navy Ships vs Kamikazes 1944-45

Be the first to review this product

The ineffectiveness of conventional air attacks on US Navy surface ships, particularly heavily defended targets like carrier task groups, forced the Japanese to re-evaluate their tactics in late 1944. The solution they arrived at was simple - crash their aircraft into American ships. This notion of self-sacrifice matched the Japanese warrior psyche and was terrifying to the sailors subjected to it. These tactics brought immediate results, and proved effective until the end of the war.
