Okinawa: The Last Battle, Parts 3 and 4 on YouTube

John Shively, Lafayette, IN, Dec.21, 2021


"These two lectures are about the use of the kamikaze as a tactical weapon in Operation Ten-Go as part of the Japanese defense of Okinawa.


"Okinawa: The Last Battle," Part 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FfFKfKJKuM

"Okinawa: The Last Battle," Part 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_ZuW8w51k0


I have begun Part 5, which is about the last mission of the IJN Yamato. This was a suicide mission and part of Operation Ten-Go. It likely will not be available for a two or three weeks...or more. 


All constructive criticism is welcome, both historical and grammatical.
