Pearl Harbor: An Illustrated History
This definitive, illustrated history re-creates for a new generation the two hour attack at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, that left more than twenty-three hundred men dead, eight battleships sunk or damaged, and the United States at war. Dan van der Vat's compelling narrative contains new revelations based on groundbreaking research and is illuminated by a wealth of rare archival images-including previously unpublished personal photos and memorabilia. Evocative paintings by marine artist Tom Freeman, maps and dimensional diagrams of the battle, and contemporary color photography set the stage for the moving first-person accounts of eyewitnesses and survivors.
