I'd like to find out more about the post 7th December rescue & recovery efforts,  the salvage, and repairs or scrapping  of the vessels damaged or destroyed that day. I'm wondering if there is any account of those activities? What it was that they did and what were the difficulties or obsticles-how did they do it? Where did they send the ships etc...once refloated or otherwise recovered, and when? Who were the folks who undertook these things?
I see that it took quite some time to clean up the mess, move or refloat the ships, to facilitate the harbors use during war time.
I can only imagine what it must've been like to have to move warships, large and small, as well as other craft, about the busy port.To have been aboard the other ships that came and went through the course of the war and seen the lingering wreckage, well it must've been very emotional...as if they needed another reminder.
Any help to further understand would be great.
Thanx,
         Chris

Aloha Chris,
THE volume is: Pearl Harbor: Why, How, Fleet Salvage and Final Appraisal by Vice Admiral Homer N. Wallin [Naval History Division, Washington: 1968].

Most libraries with Government document section should have this study made by the man in charge of the Pearl Harbor salvage.

HTH,
David

Mahalo David,  
    That should help me very much. I wonder if that is the type of book libraries loan to each other as I live in a somewhat rural county. No matter I'll find it.
             Thanx again,
                                 Chris

Chris, you might also try Descent Into Darkness by Edward Raymer, a salvage diver who was sent to Pearl immediately after the attack.

Hello Chris,

You might also want to try a new book just put out by the Naval Institute Press called Resurrection-Salvaging the Battle Fleet at Pearl Harbor. It begins on December 8, 1941 and is about the aftermath of the attack and the salvage efforts up to and including the work on the Utah.

Madsen, Daniel: Resurrection: Salvaging the Battle Fleet at Pearl Harbor [Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 2003]
