Together, these ordinary Americans paint a portrait of a nation stunned, but determined to rise again." - Reference & Research Book News

"The collection of 170 narratives describes the day the Empire of Japan launched a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. In their own words, participants shared their memories with Richardson, allowing his book to recapture the fateful events of an American tragedy." - Hamilton Journal News

"The most chilling testimonies are from witnesses of the attacks….But just as moving are the memories of ordinary Americans who were thousands of miles away from Hawaii when they received the news….A fine re-creation of a seminal moment in our history." - Booklist

"[A] broad sweep of accounts of a pivotal day in world history. The sense of disbelief and outrage resonates from the pages….[e]nables individuals normally overlooked by history to be heard." - Financial Times, London
