Product description

December the 7th, 1941, was a decisive day in World War II - it brought the USA into the war. This account of Pearl Harbor provides an illustrated examination of one of the most significant and controversial events of the war. It seeks to uncover what really happened and why the Japanese were so successful. The authors reveal several aspects of the attack that are little known and dispel the myths that have been built up around that fateful day. This revised 60th anniversary edition is packaged with a free CD featuring extracts from the Osprey Web event essentialpearlharbor.com.
