On December 7, 1941, Americans were shocked to hear that Pearl Harbor had been devastated by a Japanese air raid. Theodore Taylor looks at Japanese intelligence work and at the American anti-intelligence efforts, which were often careless or ineffective. But once the raid was launched, bravery abounded--on both sides.

About the Author:

THEODORE TAYLOR, the author of many acclaimed books for young people, is particularly known for fast-paced, exciting adventure novels, including the bestseller The Cay; Sniper; and The Weirdo, an Edgar Allan Poe Award winner. He lives in Laguna Beach, California.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-- An old standard of the World War II genre makes a new appearance with a slight face-lift. Taylor has revised his account of the attack on Pearl Harbor by basically rewriting the first chapter and changing the entire volume from the present tense to a much easier-to-read past tense. Now in paperback, the typeset is a little smaller. The charcoal illustrations of the earlier edition (HarperCollins, 1971; o.p.) have been replaced by three black-and-white maps. The text gives an in-depth look at the conditions of the time, allowing readers to better understand why this event took place. A listing of the key figures and an author's note are appended. Libraries that do not have the original title should give definite consideration to this one. --Eldon Younce, Harper Elem . School, KS
