The aim of the Kamikaze was to sink the American Aircraft Carriers. It was a last ditch effort to snatch victory from defeat. The Japanese knew that as long as the American aircraft carriers patroled the Pacific they were doomed to ultimate defeat. After reading the first 77 pages of James Bradley's FLYBOYS... my understanding is that the officers in the Japanese army took the Samurai way of life and warped it to fit their needs. This is not the true lifestyle of the Japanese.

In World War II the Axis powers turned their airplanes into weapons during Kamikaze missions. The Japanese are the most famous for this. Kamikaze missions were suicide missions, so the pilots flew to a target and aimed their plane to the ground and BOOM. Kamikaze missions were also prevalent in sea battles where one plane could take out an entire ship.
