Product Description
This is a 20 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - Pacific Theater - Kamikaze Pilots. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

In the year 1281, Japan was under attack by a Mongol invasion — led by the powerful Kublai Khan. Just as it appeared that the invading Mongols were about to overwhelm the Japanese, a catastrophic typhoon swept through the land, eliminating the entire Mongol army.

From that point on, the typhoon that saved Japan became known as the Kamikaze or Divine Wind. After the defeat at the Battle of Midway, and the fall of Saipan in July 1944, the Japanese revived the name Kamikaze and ascribed it to the suicide missions of their air force.

Japanese Vice Admiral Takashiro Ohnishi, commander of the First Air Fleet in the Philippines, had noted that the most effective way to inflict damage upon Allied warships was to crash planes into them. He noted that 1 accidental crash could do more damage than 10 planes firing machine guns. It was decided then that pilots would purposely crash their planes; with half a ton of explosives, into American warships.
