Synopsis

Documentary that examines the fearsome suicide attacks carried out by Japanese pilots during the Second World War. The Japanese term 'kamikaze', generally translated as 'divine wind', was assigned to a programme of attacks which began in October 1944 and saw pilots purposefully crash ships laden with explosives into US aircraft carriers. The documentary takes a look at the phenomenon, its strategic importance in the war and examines other examples of kamikaze attacks.
