Learn about the Battle of Okinawa and the Kamikaze squadron commander Ugaki. The Japanese had never been invaded and are terrified of the American advancement on their main land. In desperation, Vice Admiral Ugaki planned the largest use of Kamikaze tactics ever seen. The American fleet was at the island of Okinawa just south of Japan putting them in range of Ugaki's suicide squadrons. But this meant that the Americans can also strike back and Ugaki's airfields are under constant attack. Despite this, his Ohka's were ready and he launched them, Kamikazes, and Kaiten at the American fleet in the battle of Okinawa.
