    Thanks Grampa for introducing nice movie.

    Following is my opinion.
    Recent Japanese war movies seem emphasizing the tragic side only of the soldiers.
    Kamikaze attack was nothing but one of the combat tactics.

    The movie of forty years ago " Wing of the Pacific" tells us how they fought and died, from the point of actual pilots' view.

    Pretty good video, unfortunately, I can't read Japanese so I couldn't tell if this was made just for the short video or if the scenes were taken from a movie.

    All in all, it wasn't a bad production...good effects with a pretty accurate portrayal of the anti-aircraft that covered the fleet!

    It sure looks like it. They posted over 11 segments of it...

    So I'm going to assume that 太平洋の翼 is the name of the movie...

    Unfortunately, I have no idea what that means! :lol:

    Yes, my introduction was from an old movie "太平洋の翼(Wing of the Pacific)" as you have searched them up.
    Your first video clips was from "FOR THOSE WE LOVE" which was on the roadshow last year.
