"Your perception of the decisive battles fought that turned the tide in the pacific for the Americans in 1944 - 1945 will change once you finish watching this title, I know it changed my mind. I thought the war was all against the Japanese and were slaughtered countless times but then again this "declassified" video has exposed that they fought valiantly at terrible results. 400 planes were used against the whole might of the Americans during their campaign of "island-hopping" and were so effective that some of the ships were sunk and some were to be withdrawn for repairs. Kamikaze or "divine wind" is rich in footage that will keep you in the edge of your seat. You will fully understand the reasons why the Japanese empire employed such bold move and embodied the "samurai" persona because of its effectiveness and tenacity. Although at the end you will see that the futility of the method you will appreciate what our great forefathers have done for the price of freedom during world war II. This title embraces all audiences from the american point of view and to the japanese. I rated this documentary 5 stars because of the sheer impact it has made to my perception of the "kamikaze"."
