Synopsis: Traces events leading up to and resulting from the December 7, 1941, Japanese attack on American battleships at Pearl Harbor, which brought the United States into World War II.

From School Library Journal: Gr 7-10-This series title recounts the events of December 7, 1941, in the manner of a well-written, but otherwise undistinguished, dissertation (minus the footnotes). There is little to engage the target audience or provide them with more than the basic facts for reports. The book's structured organization supports McNeese's thesis, "The three hours that passed between the spotting of the Japanese submarine and the first bombs falling on Pearl Harbor are three of the most critical hours in U.S. history." He describes the build-up of military might in Japan following World War I and delineates the actions and personalities that brought about this day of infamy. According to the author, the result was "the single worst military disaster in the history of the United States Navy-." Beginning with an outline of the Japanese strategies, the bulk of the short book explains the preparation for and execution of the attack. Japan's ultimate defeat is explained, although this was accomplished with Truman's orders to drop the atomic bomb, not Roosevelt's as the last chapter states. Black-and-white archival photos, some of which are poorly reproduced, and some useful maps break up the narrative. Considering that there is no dearth of materials on this subject, most libraries can skip this title.
