well, from what i know, banzai is one of the least successful strategies used in WWII. I believe, it was somewhat like a last resort or action plan before defeat, which was usually pretty useless, because it generally led to huge losses for them. Yes, i think it was somewhat a warcry for their ruler, but also maybe for their homeland. I also read on wikipedia, that the japanese commanders used to give false victory reports to their chiefs about their success in banzai attacks. You might like to search for the Makin raids, during WWII. It's also their in the game Medal of Honor Pacific Assault.
