The Last Banzai: The Imperial Japanese Navy At Leyte Gulf

Lunghezza: 94 pagine1 ora

Descrizione

The struggle involved every facet of naval warfare: surface ships, submarines, aircraft, and amphibious forces, and introduced a new tactic which would eventually kill more American sailors and sink more American ships than any other weapon used during World War 2: the kamikaze airplane. The battle for Okinawa lay just ahead.
