Some said they heard a voice reply 'Banzai,' some heard nothing.
Here the General was interrupted by a soul-stirring shout of “Banzai!”
His reason was all gone, yet he did not forget to shout Banzai for his Fatherland.
The signal was greeted with enthusiasm and loud cries of "Banzai!"
Some Japanese regiments, in attacking our positions, threw themselves with the cry of "Banzai!"
I had already made my selection, when suddenly a voice called out from the rigging, 'Banzai!
My crew received me back with literally open arms and loud shouts of “Banzai Nippon!”
Forward went the line, until every man had been smitten down, and the last brave throat had shouted its last shrill "Banzai!"
Banzai was shouted two or three times; joy and congratulation resounded on the heights of Kenzan, which was now virtually ours.
I have been carrying this bottle in my belt since yesterday, to drink a Banzai in the enemys position.
