Publisher's Summary

In May 1945, with victory in Europe established, the war was all but over. But on the other side of the world, the Allies were still engaged in a bitter struggle to control the Pacific. And it was then that the Japanese unleashed a terrible new form of warfare: the suicide pilots, or kamikaze.

A story of courage, The Kamikaze Hunters is a gripping account of how a few brave men helped to ensure peace.

    "Interesting and informative."

    A long overdue history of the British Pacific Fleet. I found the chapter on the Palembang airstrikes enthralling. Well worth the investment in time to listen to.
