COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Eugene Whitfield | USS Ticonderoga - Navy

9:20   |   Eugene Whitfield tells the story of the twin kamikaze attacks on the aircraft carrier Ticonderoga. The first plane caught them by surprise when the Japanese pilot came straight down out of the sun. The second one hit the bridge and the captain was wounded, but he proved to be very tough.
