THE STUDIO OF ARTIST BRIAN BATEMAN

 

 

 The latest mini work, "Dawn of the Kamikaze", depicts the beginning of one of the most feared and dreaded actions proposed by the Japanese Air Corps during WWII-  the KAMIKAZE!

 

Kamikaze, or Divine Wind, a Special Attack Group, was a desperate solution to the Allied push towards the Japanese mainland proposed by Admiral Ohnishi, and it remains controversial to this day- sending brave young men to certain death with a bomb strapped underneath their aircraft  while the war was presumably lost way beforehand.

 

This painting depicts A6M5 model 52 Zeros of the 301st Hikotaki, 201st Kokutai during one of the first units to be formed in late October at Malabacat,Phillipines, 1944.
