Publisher's Summary

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.

Riveting story, didn't want it to end

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.

A must for those interested in British Military history.

The book delivers an outstanding very personal heartfelt account of the great achievements of the Royal Navy's forgotten war.
