Just read this on another site. Apologies if someone's already posted this but I couldn't see it on the front page.

Cheers, Spinner

October 25th 1944, 24 volunteer pilots from the Japanese 201st Navy air group became the first kamikaze to attack the US during the battle of Leyte Gulf.

All told, more than 1320 Kamikaze aircraft were launched, causing over 3000 allied deaths, but failing to halt the allied advance in the Pacific.
