This is very true. The Japanese saw honor in dying while attacking, especially if attacking against insurmountable odds. This ensured that their best men were dead. They would not fall back to regroup, restructure their setup and attack again. Once the attack began, it was final until everybody was dead. This was an untold advantage for the United States.

Also, defense was considered a dishonorable pursuit. Hunting submarines was included in this stigma. They had a few maverick officers who truly sought excellence in defensive capability, but they were countered by a cultural bias that what they were doing was cowardly.
