Kamikaze Pilots had one job. Introduce and crash their face (and plane) into the deck of an American Aircraft Carrier or Battleship. They were a late addition to Imperial Japan's arsenal during the latter years of World War 2 when they desperately trying to stop the United States from defeating them.
So what happened to these young pilots when they failed and returned to their bases? Were they punished or just sent back out on another mission to sacrifice it all for victory. Find out in this video, the latest in my very short animated historical documentaries (about history).
