Also released as Kamizake, the Japanese Attack Squadron is a docudrama concerning the suicide pilots of World War 2. An acceptable amount of screen time is devoted to the psychological makeup of the pilots. There is also a cursory overview of the "Die for the Rising Sun" groupthink of the Japanese populace. The film's greatest value is its selection of rare wartime newsreel footage, showing the Kamikaze in action.
