Caption: WWII Japanese Kamikaze pilots. Group of early Japanese Kamikaze pilots receiving a ceremonial cup of sake from Vice Admiral Takijiro Ohnishi before a mission during World War II. Kamikaze attacks were suicide attacks carried out by Japanese pilots flying specially adapted aircraft carrying a combination of explosives, bombs, torpedoes and full fuel tanks. They were designed to destroy warships more effectively than was possible with conventional attacks. Photographed in 1944.
