About the book:

An illuminating and evocative case study of the peculiar dementia that afflicted the Japanese ruling classes and their samurai in the last "Good War". - Washington Post Book Review The Kamikaze Mission of the Battleship Yamato, April 1945 - By sprint 1945, Japan's cities had been leveled by fire bombings, and the nation was virtually depleted of raw materials. The navy actually tried running some of the few ships left floating on soybean oil. Meanwhile, Amerian forces were closing in, island by island. The war was all but lost. Desperate times required desperate measures. Here begins the story of the Yamato, the greatest kamikaze that ever was, sent on a suicide mission to disrupt the anticipated marine landing at Okinawa. A Glorious Way to Die is the gripping chronicle of the the Yamato's unforgettably drastic mission.
