No price was too great to pay for the deadly kamikazes of WWII. Discover the truth behind one of the most feared, and fearless, warriors in living memory: the kamikaze.
Revisit the terrifying days of the Pacific Theatre during WWII, as US forces face-off against the desperate and merciless kamikaze tactics of the Japanese air force in the battle for Okinawa. Witness the first organised kamikaze attack in history, and hear from a survivor of the brutal assault of October 1944.
But kamikaze attacks are not just restricted to aerial attacks, or even the Japanese. In April 1945 the German Luftwaffe launched a volunteer unit called the Sonderkommando ELBE, specifically in order to take down American bombers through mid-air collisions. And beneath the waves there were the Kaiten, manned Japanese suicide submarines devised in desperation and developed in secrecy.
