Too Close For Comfort

According to the articles of the Geneva Convention, hospitals, hospital ships, and medical facilities are not to be subjected to enemy attacks during the war time. On April 28, 1945, 50 miles south of Okinawa, a Japanese kamikaze pilot ignored this fact and crashed his plane into the US Navy hospital ship Comfort. This book gives a complete account of the attack and the repercussions that followed.
