Pearl Harbor

Today is the 75th anniversary of the day "that shall live in infamy," the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, by the Japanese. The action, in which 2,403 Americans were killed and 1,178 were wounded, resulted in the United States entering World War II the following day.



2016 has seen a great number of books on Pearl Harbor and the war in the Pacific, being published to coincide with the 75th anniversary, including these three recent additions to our collection:
