THE FLEET THAT CAME TO STAY (Black And White, 1946, 20 Min.)
A landmark film produced immediately after the end of hostilities detailing the herculean effort that went into the American naval campaign against the Japanese in the Pacific theater. Contains awesome combat footage with especial attention on the horrific kamikaze attacks of the Battle of Okinawa and elsewhere. Produced by the Treasury Department in order to sell bonds to finance the enormous job left for the Navy to do.
VICTORY AT SEA: SUICIDE FOR GLORY (Black And White, 1954, 23 Min.)
A literal melodrama, or "song drama", in documentary form, utilizing stark battle footage in a rousing attempt by Americans both to understand and reject the suicide bomber mentality of World War II era Japan, and with much the same attitude as Americans have towards suicide bombers today.
THE TWENTIETH CENTURY: TYPHOON AT OKINAWA (Black And White, 1957, 23 Min.)
The venerable Walter Cronkite: "This is the story of two winds: the brutal wind of the typhoon and what the Japanese call 'The Divine Wind' of the Kamikaze.". It is also the best short documentary there is on the subject of Kamikazes, with films of their attacks that rank among the best of all World War II combat footage.
G. I. DIARY: KAMIKAZE: FLOWER OF DEATH (Color, 1978, 22 Min.)
Exquisite colorized films give a realistic view of what kamikaze attacks must have looked like in a physical as well as a cinematic sense. Lloyd Bridges narrates.
SURVIVAL!: KAMIKAZE (Black And White, 1964, 22 Min.)
Well chosen footage complements a storied narration with emphasis on both the land operations of the Battle of Okinawa as well as the naval engagements on the land and in the air.
KAMIKAZE: TO DIE FOR THE EMPEROR (Color, 1991, 53 Min.)
A careful examination of the totality of the art and practice of Japanese suicide airpower, its tactics and strategy, its logic and philosophy.
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC EXPLORER: KAMIKAZE (1988, COLOR, 15 MIN.)
Unique documentary segment on the survivors of both the US Destroyer USS Laffey and the elite Japanese Kamikaze corp "The Thunder Guns" that attacked and severely damaged the Laffey during the Battle of Okinawa.
