Aloha M. Vera 02,
You might note we use our real names here to get to know each other better.

Your quest is for "some info"... the subject "Pearl Harbor Attack" is so broad that there are hundreds of sub-topics. You must decide what particular aspect of the attack you require info on to truely receive "some info".

Basically, you shall have to determine if what you are to do is "political". "Strategic", "tactical", or "technical"...or some other category. Just reading this web site will give you quite a lot of items in each of those categories. You can not just ask for "everything"....you might get it. Be specific. Focus!

In my 35 year study of the attack, I have gathered 28 file drawers of "info", plus a host of books...and 2100 3x5 cards of citations on "Pearl Harbor".

Hi "M Vera 02",
Please...I'm trying to help, not criticize...you need to focus on which topic you want to write on. If you write on "automobiles", you must select some phase about them...
Sorry about my quest for focus...
Cheers,
David

Hi Michele,
My high school thesis was on the "whole thing" and I read about 8 books before I focused on the "tactical" actions on the American side. That was an over view of which targets were hit, the order in which they were hit, and the human toll at each spot.

Day of Infamy by Walter Lord [Rendom House, 1957] was my main book. I often recommend the volume. I recomended it for further reading in my article just printed and hitting the news stand: "Torpedoing Pearl Harbor" in the Dec 2001 issue of Military History.

In that article, I focused my attention on just the Japanese airmen aboard the torpedo bombers, their targets and what happened to those Japanese killed and wounded.

For more info on preliminary actions before the bombs dropped, I recommend reading Ladislas Farago's The Broken Seal -which is the basis of the movie "Tora! Tora! Tora!".

For the code breaking activities... well, I can't go on listing sources until you relate what points you would like to speak about within your topic. That means reading something about the attack to begin your quest for your paper.

Thank you for your patience,
Sincerely,
David

Hi Michele,
Larry made a great comment at another category on this site. He said that to understand more about "Pearl Harbor" [as it related to the Sept 11 terrorist action] one must break down the subject into smaller items. He suggested:

Preparedness/Readiness

Prior indications of a possible attack

State of the relations between the attacker and the attacked

Damage

Potential consequences

Governmental reaction

Media reaction

Public reaction

You might consider this in your quest,
Sincerely,
David

Aloha All,
The need to do a research project on "Pearl Harbor" demands an understanding of the HOST of topics which make up that title. This reminds me of a Great Chinese proverb:

The student came to see the great master and said "tell me everything you know." The master said "sit down first...have some tea." The master began pouring the tea until it overflowed his visitor's cup, onto the floor, and he emptied the pot. The student, shocked, said "why did you do that, great master, why did you waste the tea that way?" The great master replied "it is important to know what it is that you want to know, and how much knowledge you want, for everything is nothing."
