Editorial Reviews

Suicide attacks have become a frightening modern day reality. An unprecedented military strategy, conceived by the Japanese in a frantic effort to avoid defeat during the final months of World War II, suicide attacks resulted in over 150 allied ships damaged and more than 4,000 U.S. soldiers killed. Although ultimately unsuccessful, this strategy was an effective and demoralizing campaign that left American troops uneasy and filled with dread.

Smithsonian Networks reveals never before seen film footage of Japanese kamikaze training, shares U.S. military footage, interviews veterans from both sides of the conflict, stages historic reenactments and shows you one of the world's only intact Kamikaze planes on display at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.

Day of the Kamikaze documents the origins of kamikaze battle and shares true, eyewitness accounts of the biggest and bloodiest suicide attack in history over two days in 1945 when the Japanese launched Operation Heaven against the allied fleet in the Pacific.

Eyewitness Kamikaze shares the personal stories of young WWII crewmen, survivors who faced an almost daily onslaught of kamikaze attacks. In their own words, it's a story they will never forget... nor will you.

This is an awesome program and lots of good information which includes surviving pilots and family members. This is the second copy that I've bought and the audio is still the same. The audio keeps "cutting out" numerous timeswhile people are talking. This is the only complaint I have about this program. I work a lot of hours during the week and can't get to the post office to return it......

This shows the story of the kamakize and it talks to survivors on both sides. There is a lot of good footage here and great interviews. You will learn that many of the young men were forced basically to do this. It's a failure in leadership that lead to this situation in Japan as they kept going when all was clearly lost. Fanaticism also is a factor in this . But the story is worth seeing and learning about his terrible part of history. I saw this on tv , so I can't comment on the quality of the dvd. But the story is a must see. "day of the kamakize' is worth your time.

Unfortunately the sound and pictures in this dvd jump considerable, but the content could be followed. It would be nice to have an opposing opinion too.
