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.

"A gripping account of a virtually unknown drama.... His story is laced with vivid anecdotes which wonderfully illustrate the character and calibre of the individuals who took up this great challenge." (Jonathan Dimbleby)
As the books opening suggests, the RNs Pacific fleet and the fleet air arm's actions are not well known at all. The book sheds light on this forgotten fleet and is a fascinating insight into the background, training and ultimate actions of these young men. I really enjoyed the performance of this book and would highly recommend.
The book delivers an outstanding very personal heartfelt account of the great achievements of the Royal Navy's forgotten war.
A well read comprehensive history of flying in the British Navy, the plans, people and battles with a good amount of first hand accounts.
