  1. Actually, I don't think the Kamikaze appeared until about 1944, during the invasion of Okinawa.

    1. Yup, I found this website: http://www.scmp.com/news/asia/article/1532127/un-heritage-body-refuses-request-preserve-letters-kamikaze-pilots
      giving the picture the date of 1945, I am changing the date from 1941 to 1945.
      Thanks!

  2. I lived in Okinawa as a child. We once visited a place called suicide cliff,overlooking the ocean. The story I remember was that the locals flung themselves over the cliff because when they heard the Americans were coming, and the Americans were described as red skinned monsters, they were so fearful, many chose to commit suicide.
