What Happened at Pearl Harbor?
The United States may never have entered World War II if it were not for the Japanese attack on the U.S. fleet at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. Upon hearing of the attack, the American public clamored for a declaration of war against Japan, which soon led to combat with Italy and Germany as well. Japan's motivation for attacking the United States and the repercussions of the event--including the internment of Japanese Americans in the states--are thoroughly discussed in this powerful book. Actual wartime photographs and absorbing narratives will inspire history buffs as well as anyone interested in this time period.
