Best Answer

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.
