An epic account of true events, this is the unparalleled tale behind the legacy of the Kamikaze pilot, when the objective was not to survive, but to die in the name of honour.
In the final months of WWII, US naval forces expanded in the South West Pacific, triggering a series of sustained and devastating aerial attacks on Allied ships from the Japanese military. In a last ditch effort to defend the Empire, an elite air force unit named Special Attack Corps was formed with the sole mission to storm unsuspecting US carriers and ships from the skies, with catastrophic results.
With causalities in their thousands, this tale brings to life the enduring image of the Kamikaze pilot in one of the most intense and relentless attacks of 1945.
