More Description

December 7th was just another sun-washed dawn in Honolulu. The men and women of Pearl Harbor prepared for a routine day at the naval base. An Army private noticed on his radar screen a large fleet of planes headed for Pearl Harbor, but because a number of B-17s were expected, he was told to ignore the alert. Minutes later, at 7:55 a.m., the first Japanese dive-bomber appeared, followed by nearly two hundred aircraft. In the end, more than 2,300 U.S. military personnel were dead, more than a thousand more were injured, and the United States had entered World War II.

Pearl Harbor is a gripping account of the political, social, and military landscape leading up to that infamous day, and follows the heroes, victims, and perpetrators of the attack as they made a life after the war. From the roots of the conflict to the lasting effect of the attack, here is the definitive account of the horror, the implications, and the lasting effects of a tragedy that has become a landmark in the American memory. Includes more than 300 images.
