{detailed description}In May 1945, with victory in Europe secured, the Second World 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.
Drawing on meticulous research and unique personal access to the remaining survivors, Will lredale tells the stories of the young pilots of the British Pacific Fleet, from the early days of the war through their initial training to life aboard carrier ships. He describes the terrifying reality of fighting against enemies
who, in the cruel last summer of the war, chose death rather than risk their country's dishonourable defeat.
A story of courage, valour and dogged determination, The Kamikaze Hunters is a gripping account of how a few brave young men helped to ensure lasting peace.
