About the Author:

Paul J. Travers received a B.A. from the University of Maryland and an M.A. from Pepperdine University. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps as an amphibious armor officer. A former historian for the Maryland Park Service, he is the author of The Patapsco River: Baltimore’s River of History.

From Publishers Weekly:

Prefaced by two chapters titled, respectively, "Pearl Harbor: Geographical and Historical Background" and "The Battle of Pearl Harbor: The Official Account of the U.S. Navy," this book gathers straightforward personal recollections by 46 American servicemen, one Army nurse and one male civilian of the December 7, 1941 attack. Most of these individuals participated in defense and/or rescue operations on Battleship Row, Ford Island, Hickam Field, the Navy Yard, Scofield Barracks and other Pearl Harbor locations. Memories of the "day after" are also included with accounts of hasty burial ceremonies, trigger-happy GIs hunting for nonexistent enemy soldiers and the near panic caused by rumors such as one about a commercial airline pilot who claimed to have seen Japanese troop ships approaching Oahu. Despite repetition and overlaps, the book captures what it was like to live through one of modern history's great events.
