December 7, 1941, began like any other day. The sun was warm and bright in Pearl Harbor. Most of the sailors stationed there were relaxing on the relaxing on the decks of their ships
But before it was over, this day was to become etched in the memory of every American. For it was the day the United States was attacked and thrust into World War II.
The Day Pearl Harbor Was Bombed tells the story not only of this day, but of the entire war- Hitler's Nazi Germany and the concentration camps, the Bataan Death March, the invasion of Normandy, the atomic bomb. The book also describes life on the home front- from the collecting of scrap metal and the wail of air raid sirens to the Japanese American relocation camps.
With powerful photographs and newspaper headlines, The Day Pearl Harbor Was Bombed gives a vivid account of the defeats and the victories, the pain and pride of World War II.
