December 7, 1941:
It was the end of innocence...
And the dawn of
America's greatest glory
Rafe Mcawley and Danny Walker grew up in the army like brothers in Tennessee. Now they're daring young pilots in the U.S. Army Air Corps. Rafe has fallen in love with Evelyn Stewart, a beautiful U.S. Navy nurse. But when the sounds of war begin to rumble on the horizon, Rafe decides he must leave his new love and his best friend to join Europe's fight. Swearing to Evelyn and Danny that he will return, Rafe heads for the deadly skies above the English Channel. Meanwhile Evelyn and Danny are transferred to Hawaii's peaceful paradise -- Pearl Harbor -- unaware of the approach of devastating forces that will soon change their lives -- and the fate of the entire world.
Pearl Harbor is a tale of shocking surprise, catastrophic defeat, heroic victory and overwhelming love.

This is another instance when the book (this time the audiobook) is superior to the movie. That's because even though the book is obviously devoid of the multimillion-dollar visuals found in the movie, Barrett Whitener's performance is marked by explicit imagery. (Still, having seen the movie first, one can't help picturing Ben Affleck in the starring role.) Here is the whole Pearl Harbor attack story with a love triangle as a backdrop. Whitener delivers a professional and exciting performance as we follow two friends through boyhood, flight training, the attack, and finally, the famous Doolittle raid on Tokyo. Come to think of it, it's better to have seen the movie first because Whitener's clear and precise reading makes the audio a pleasant surprise.
