Descent into Darkness : Pearl Harbor, 1941: A Navy Diver's Memoir (recommended)
by Edward C. Raymer

List Price: $21.95
Our Price: $17.56
You Save: $4.39 (20%)

Availability: Usually ships within 24 hours.

 

Book Description
Raymer's World War II memoirs throw some light on a literally dark side of Pearl Harbor and the Pacific war--the salvage efforts on sunken and damaged ships. He spent most of his wartime diving career in Hawaii, working on ships ranging from the ruined Arizona to the comparatively easily salvaged California, but also took a side trip to Guadalcanal aboard a salvage tug. His is a plain tale plainly told, and one could wish for more material on diving and less on chasing women and liquor ashore. Yet Raymer pays tribute to fallen comrades--diving was nearly as dangerous as combat--to good and bad superiors and divers, and to the technical ingenuity of the U.S. Navy at the time of its greatest trial. He adds more than enough to our knowledge of the Pacific war for his recollections to be worthwhile. Roland Green.

East Wind Rain : A Pictorial History of the Pearl Harbor Attack (recommended)
by Stan B. Cohen

Our Price: $14.95

Book Description:
Reviewer:
Dr. Martin Davis (vsfg37a@prodigy.com) (see more about me) from New York:
This is a superior historical review, in pictorial form, of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The 50th Anniversary edition has been greatly expanded to include diagrams and photographs that were not in the original edition. Although of a pictorial nature, the text is scholarly, extremely well-researched and concise. The maps and previously unpublished photographs place the attack in an accurate historical context. This book is in the "must read" classification and it is another diamond among author Stan Cohen's many diamonds.

Book Description
70 b/w photos, 14 color, 7 x 9
Sunday December 7, 1941 saw the dawn of modern warfare. Air superiority and surprise led to the shattering of the superior US Pacific fleet in one stroke. The full might of Japanese naval aviation power was hurled against the United States as six aircraft carriers disgorged their full complements in two waves. The attack on Pearl Harbor was either a brilliant maneuver by an audacious strategist or unparalleled villainy and deception by a supposedly friendly power. The attack on the home of the US Pacific fleet precipitated the intervention of the United States into WWII, and became a key event in world history.

by Lawrence R. Rodriggs

Our Price: $29.95

Availability: On Order; usually ships within 1-2 weeks.

Book Description
Lawrence Rodriggs has given us a glimpse into the souls of those who were on Oahu the day Pearl Harbor was bombed. Their lives were changed forevermore. In their interviews with the author, each person recalled in vivid color the events of that day. A variety of races was represented, as were men, women, boys and girls, from a wide range of occupations and backgrounds. Having read military accounts of Pearl Harbor, it was with great interest that I read the eyewitnesses of civilians in their own words. For many, it was as if it had happened yesterday. These people did whatever was necessary to survive during those most difficult days. They showed deep commitment to their families and to our country. Their resilience is an inspiration to all of us.
