Praise

Praise for Kaiten

“A powerful tale about how an intersection of youth, patriotism, and sacrifice ended in a fiery suicidal assault on an American warship. More than recounting a battle, this is a very human story that relives one of the most painful episodes of World War II.”—James P. Delgado, author of Silent Killers: Submarines and Underwater Warfare

“A crisp, persuasive narrative about a little-known but startling World War II attack . . . Mair and Waldron portray the story from both perspectives, constantly building to a dramatic, fiery crescendo. Their profiles of American and Japanese sailors add poignancy to a compelling story of battle disaster, death, and survival.”—David Sears, author of Pacific Air

“This doomed mission almost became lost in history after the atomic explosions at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But the authors of Kaiten have pulled together the story and populated it with flesh-and-blood warriors on both sides of the conflict . . . This book can take its place alongside Shadow Divers and Unbroken as a graphic, living story from the worst war the world has ever known.”—Richard McCord, journalist, editor, and publisher of the Santa Fe Reporter, and author of The Chain Gang: One Newspaper versus the Gannett Empire
