Gr 4 Up-In this effective narrative built from first-person oral histories, striking photographs are combined with excellent maps, resulting in a sophisticated design. The arresting visuals are the foil for powerful tales of warfare, destruction, and patriotism. A noteworthy foreword is followed by accounts of American sailors such as Clark Simmons, who was awakened on December 7, 1941, by explosions outside his battleship, and others, including that of Haruo Yoshino, who was among the Japanese pilots dropping the torpedoes. Both sides of this dramatic story are humanized and fairly presented in a sound, historical context. Interesting postscripts follow up on several of the individuals highlighted, and a unique time line integrates a minute-by-minute account of the attack with a more general one of the Pacific and European conflicts. This compelling title will be of interest to general readers and is an ideal resource for units on World War II.

Gr. 5-9. Eyewittness testimony of Japanese and American men and women from various backgrounds enriches this balanced treatment of World War II that joins an ever-expanding assortment of books on the subject. The first-person perspectives allow for a more complex view of events as well as individuals involved in a conflict that swept people up--and nearly swept them away. Allen begins his account in Kyushu, Japan, where pilots and submarine crews train for the attack. Subsequent chapters move to Hawaii where survivors describe the bombing from the cockpit, the deck, and the shore, giving readers an emotionally charged view of the devastation. A final chapter on the aftermath of Pearl Harbor briefly notes the unjust internment of Japanese Americans and introduces readers to the USS Arizona memorial, seeing it through the eyes of one of the Japanese sailors. The first-person voices along with dozens of black-and-white photos and several full-color maps make this a draw for both browsers and World War II buffs. A time line and a bibliography are appended.

This book is very short, but it does contain some good information, and the pictures and maps are very good. This is a good introductory book about Pearl Harbor, but I would recommend something larger for a more complete analysis of the attack.
