Except for the glaring typographical errors, this is an excellent book on a subject that is fading from view. Most Americans have a sense of a battle "somewhere out there" that led to our involvement in World War II, but as for detailed knowledge, it doesn't exist. It will soon be totally in the hands of historians writing from sources. The construction of the story is excellent and I'm glad I found this book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312286902, Hardcover)

"Remember the Arizona!" was the battle cry of American sailors stationed in the Pacific during World War II. The mighty warship, which was bombed at Pearl Harbor by the Japanese on December 7, 1941, became and remains to this day a symbol and rallying point for America's sudden entrance into war.

Here, using eyewitness accounts of the bombing and the sinking, the authors narrate the compelling history of the USS Arizona before, during, and after the attack, and describe the Arizona Memorial's legacy today. This engrossing book includes sixteen pages of photographs and extensive interviews with sailors who survived Imperial Japan's attack. The USS Arizona, published on December 7, 2001, the sixtieth anniversary of the surprise attack, is the only full-length book on the great ship and its beautiful resting place.
