“The author manages to cover a lot of ground in a relatively small amount of pages. Pearl Harbor sent shockwaves through the world, and that sense of shock and disbelief is captured here. Great look at one of America’s pivotal moments.” – Henry C. (Las Cruces, USA)
“The heroes section of the book was particularly intriguing to me, simply because acts of heroism in times of peril are astounding in and of themselves. This day, which caught everyone by surprise, makes those that performed these great acts true heroes that thought on their feet and helped to prevent even more lives from being lost.” – Josh A.

“I remember hearing my grandfather speak of Pearl Harbor often. The nation was truly taken aback by the events of that day, and it’s no wonder that the war effort was given such strong support from then on. This book leaves no detail undiscussed, and is a great starting look into a broad, interesting topic.” – Mary S. (Staunton, USA)
