Kamikaze is what the Japanese called a weather pattern surrounding their island. When enemies have tried to attack Japan the wind and wave patterns made it impossible for the attacking forces to make it to Japan. The Huns were an example of the unsuccessful. The term later was applied to Japanese pilots that drove their planes into ships, barracks, etc. - the pilot gave his life for his country.
