    The story goes that when Khubilai Khan sent an immense armada to subjugate Japan in 1281, the emperor of the outnumbered Japanese prayed to the gods, who responded with 'divine wind' - the kamikaze - which drowned more than 100,000 invaders. Delgado uses the recent insights of marine archaeology to reveal the truth about these events and examines how the legend was revived during the Second World War.
