Describe the diplomacy, events and outcome of the Mongol invasions of Japan. How did the Japanese react to this invasion? What logistical and military issues were faced by Kublai Khan’s Chinese, Korean, and Mongol troops? Were the vaunted Samurai superior, equal, or inferior to their enemies on the battlefield? What impact did the kamikaze have on the outcome of the campaign? As a follow up, why did Japanese leadership use that same name for their suicide attacks on American ships at the end of the Second World War?
