9781482404098: The Attack on Pearl Harbor (Turning Points in US Military History)

Without the Japanese attack on the US fleet at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, the United States might never have entered World War II. Instead, the American public clamored for a declaration of war against Japan, which soon led to combat with Italy and Germany as well. The motivations for Japan to attack the United States and the repercussions of the event, including the internment of Japanese-Americans, are thoroughly discussed in this valuable book. Actual wartime photographs and absorbing anecdotes will inspire history buffs and anyone interested in this time period.

From Booklist:

The day that lives in infamy gets a quick but impressively wide-ranging look in this volume of the Turning Points in U.S. Military History series. Samuels’ clear-eyed prose makes it easy to grasp the global trajectories leading to the surprise attack, which resulted from a slow ratcheting up of tensions between the U.S. and Japan. Chapters alternate swiftly between American and Japanese points of view, with Admiral Yamamoto emerging as a fascinating figure who, despite the bold assault, predicted Japan’s eventual loss. The graphic design is gritty but spacious, and staggering aerial photos taken by Japanese pilots are used to impressive effect. Short sidebars pull out further info on the Lend-Lease Act, Zero planes, and more, and the narrative smartly dovetails with the story of Japanese internment camps. An invigorating place to start for report writers. Grades 5-8. --Daniel Kraus
