Blossoms in the wind : the human legacy of the Kamikaze by Mordecai G Sheftall( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last days of World War II, the Japanese unleashed a new breed of warrior, the kamikaze--idealistic young men believing there could be no greater glory than to sacrifice their lives in suicide attacks to defend their homeland. But what of those men who took the sacred oath to die in battle--and lived? Soon after the 9/11 attacks, ethnographer M.G.

The result is a poignant and unforgettable glimpse into the lives and mindsets of former kamikaze pilots who never completed their final missions.--From publisher description
