This book was a long time in coming and I'm happy that it was finally written so well.

In a well researched and ably written book, Mr. Harding provides convincing answers to these questions and also provides much human interest on the way.

I highly recommend this book if history is you're genre. A very thoroughly researched story on an often overlooked event that was certainly overshadowed by the attack on Pearl Harbor. It provides an excellent insight into what life onboard this vessel was like. Best of all is the author gave a fine scenario of what was likely the actual demise of this crew and then supported it with plausible data written in a very understandable manner. It makes me want to check out other things he's written.

Some of the best history is a story we know the answer at the beginning and yet the author keeps us on track with his or her ability to spin a good yarn. Once I started this I could not put it down. This book is very well written and the research looks top notch. I especially enjoyed reading the foot notes as those often added extra information about the story as well as where the author got his information. Highly recommended!

I enjoyed this book from start to finish. It is probably the first engagement between Japan and the US in the 2nd World War. What I don't understand is this ship was equiped with a modern radio, a qualified Army Operater and the newest distress signs were sent, still no planes
were dispatched and not much of a search was mounted. It seems like everyone was asleep from Pearl Harbor to the US Coast on Dec. 7 1941.

Numerous weighty (and often unneeded) tomes are published about the great events of history. Books about less well known and smaller scale events are frequently more interesting. This book is a fine example of the latter category. The Cynthia Olson was a small freighter enroute from the west coast to Honolulu when she was sunk by a Japanese submarine on the morning of December 7, 1941. But was she attacked before the attack on Pearl Harbor? What happened to the crew? In a well researched and ably written book, Mr. Harding provides convincing answers to these questions and also provides much human interest on the way. An excellent piece of work.
