Hearing the story of the deadliest kamikaze attack of WWII, listeners experience both the terror of being on the targeted ship, the USS BUNKER HILL, and the terror of the Japanese pilots flying to their certain deaths. The author tries to convey how a pilot's desire to live can be suppressed such that he is willing to train for months to kill himself in the perpetration of a mass homicide. Narrator Michael Prichard reads briskly, following the cue of the action described when the raging fires cannot be suppressed. He slows to a somber, deeper voice when describing the ceremonies performed before pilots left on their fatal missions. He even sings one little song and recites some poetry, showing his wide versatility as a performer. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
