What compels a group of soldiers to willingly run into a barrage of automatic weapons during World War I? How did the kamikaze pilots come to belief their actions were warranted?

Koenigsberg, founder of the Library of Social Science. He is also the author of several books including Nations Have the Right to Kill: Hitler, the Holocaust and War and Hitler's Ideology.
