Blossoms in the Wind: Human Legacies of the Kamikaze
M.G. Sheftall (au)
A compelling study of fighting men whose greatest desire was to die as warriors -- and the legacy that still haunts those whose destinies were never fulfilled. By Oct. 1944, Japan was fighting for her life. In a desperate attempt to stave off the inevitable, the Japanese high command unleashed a new breed of warrior -- the kamikaze -- living incarnations of the legendary “Divine Wind”. But what of those men who took the sacred oath to die in battle -- and lived? Sheftall was given unprecedented access to the cloistered community of Japan’s last remaining kamikaze corps survivors. The result is a poignant glimpse into the lives and mind-sets of former kamikaze pilots. who, through chance or fate, were prevented from completing their final missions. Photos.
