Zaloga covers all of the various equipment and methods that were seriously considered and developed in the last year or so of the Pacific War. The apecial they carried out and their success or lack thereof is closely evaluated. In all, it makes for a fascinating book I found kanikaze a japaneee to read Would you like to tell us about a lower price? The destruction of much of the remainder of the Japanese fleet and its air arm in the later half of left the Japanese Home Islands vulnerable to attack by US naval and air forces.
These initially consisted of crude improvisations of conventional aircraft fitted with high-explosive bombs that could be crashed into US warships.
In view of the success of these attacks, the Japanese armed forces began to develop an entire range of new special attack weapons. This book will begin by examining the initial kamikaze aircraft attacks, but the focus of the book will be on the dedicated special attack weapons developed in It also covers specialized suicide attack weapons such as anti-tank lunge mines.

While not as in-depth as many books on this subject this product looks at the initial use of Japanese suicide weapons, first by utilizing obsolete and surplus aircraft already in the inventory and then later by special-built airplanes, flying bombs and miniature submarines. Zaloga, a very skilled writer, has done a good job of explaining differences in the Japanese Navy high-tech and Army low-tech approaches to Kamikaze attacks.
The photographs and artwork make for a fascinating look at this chapter in WWII history. Covers subject just fine. An excellent addition to the series. He has almost everything he needs, but this was what he requested! Good research on projects generally unknown to even students of military history.
Pricy for its short length. Well researched and written with good photographs. It does give an unknown insight into what the Japanese were up to in their last desperate battle preparations but still the book gives us very preliminary account of what actually was going on within the inner circle of the Japanese military preparation for the ultimate mainland battle.
This short 48 page book provides a description of Japan’s main kamikaze weapons of World War II along with an overview of how they performed. It covers the aircraft which were used as Kamikazes and the Army and Navy’s suicide boats and submarines in some detail. It also briefly discusses the rather impractical-sounding “Kamikaze frogmen” and the Army’s anti-tank suicide units.
In line with this focus on kamikaze weapons, Zaloga doesn’t really discuss topics such as the mindset which led to the adoption of suicide tactics and the experiences of the men involved in the suicide units. Throughout the book Zaloga’s descriptions of the different types of Kamikaze weapons are clear, and his analysis of their performance is convincing.
However, the book simply tries to cover too much in its 48 pages. There’s relatively little detail on the technical characteristics of the weapons used no data tables of their key statistics, for instance and while the analysis is of a high quality, it feels ‘cramped’.
All up, I found this book to be interesting and a useful introduction to Japanese kamikaze weapons. However, it was ultimately a bit disappointing due to the lack of detail on the weapons and how they performed. Army generals and Navy admirals during the s. One thing wasn’t foreseen, the Japanese use of suicide aircraft.
Even the Japanese didn’t expect to take such an extrme measure. Moreover, American ships now had formidable arrays of 20mm and 40mm antiaircraft guns as well as radar fuzes for their 5-inch guns. Between these guns and the formidable F6F Hellcat fighters, it was nearly impossible for Japanese bombers to make normal attacks on ships. Since aircraft were the best and often only way to attack enemy ships, the Japanese came up with the concept of one-way suicide attacks by their bombers.
The Japanese Imperial Navy called the new attack method kamikaze, a Japanese term for “divine,” or “heavenly,” “wind” Army suicide pilots were called Tokkatai or Special Attack Units. The term had a prominent place in Japanese history, as timely storms had saved Japan from invasion by Mongol fleets during the medieval period. Moreover, Japanese pilots were already accustomed to making suicide attacks when all else failed.
This was part of Japan’s military tradition, something Americans had witnessed time after time as Japanese infantry fought to the death and refused to surrender in the most hopeless situations. The first kamikaze units were organized in the Philipines in the fall of There was no problem in getting pilots to volunteer for such duty. From the beginning, the Japanese to use even obsolete aircraft sought to make as much as they could of their kamikaze.
These attacks would allow them to use even obsolete aircraft. Pilot training could be minimal and often was, with many pilots receiving only a weeks flight apecial. Precious aviation fuel would be saved, as aircraft need to be given only enough for going out and if no enemy ships were found coming back. Specual third of a plane’s fuel usually reserved for maneuvering and a margin of kami,aze could be dispensed with. The first kamikaze japanesf took place on October 25, off Samar Island in the southern Philippines.
Kamikaze attacks evolved between the initial attacks off Leyte and the great wave attacks at Okinawa.
The attacks off Leyte were conducted attacj small numbers of aircraft simulating conventional attacks until the last possible moment. As time went on, it was realized that larger numbers of aircraft, swarming in from different directions and at different altitudes, were more effective. Kamikaze aircraft were most effective in conditions of reduced visibility, mist, twilight, and the like.
Kamikaze: Japanese Special Attack Weapons – Steven J. Zaloga: Osprey Publishing
Morning twilight was apparently the best time to attack, since much 194445 their approach could be made under cover of darkness, while their final plunge would occur when there was some light. Author Steven Zaloga has packed more than enough information in this book that provides an excellant primer on this subject. Both the artwork and photographs are of first-rate quality and help the reader get a clear understanding of how these weapon systems worked.
