"Culled from 350 interviews conducted over 15 years, these 40 oral histories of December 7, 1941, and its immediate aftermath recount the experiences of military men and women present at Pearl Harbor and its environs. The diverse vantage points range from ships attacked at sea to Battleship Row, the Navy drydocks, the airfields, Schofield Barracks, the Tripler Army Hospital, and the suburbs of Honolulu. The authors introduce the speakers with brief biographical sketches outlining their lives before December 7th, then follow the narratives with accounts of their subsequent careers. While many studies have covered the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, this is the first to offer such a full complement of U.S. enlisted and junior officers' descriptions of the event. Highly recommended for most collections."--Library Journal
"La Forte and Marcello have made a worthwhile contribution to the vast literature on Pearl Harbor."--Choice
