Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
On Sunday, December 7, 1941 the air and naval forces of Imperial Japan struck the American navy base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. In approximately two hours of air strikes the Japanese were able to devastate America's most powerful naval force. Over 3,500 Americans were either killed or wounded in a surprise attack that launched the entrance of the United States into World War II. This "day that will live in infamy" is the subject of this volume of the "Events That Shaped America" series. In this illustrated and compact history book co-authors Sabrina Crewe and Michael V. Uschan attempt to provide younger readers with a once over lightly review of the Pearl Harbor assault. Through both their concise narrative and the inclusion of numerous illustrations the authors are successful in offering readers a complete outline of this telling historical event. The drama of the day on which Americans were finally drawn into the global conflict that raged across the world is quite compelling. In this short book Crewe and Uschan hit the mark in their efforts by tracing the confusing elements of the Pearl Harbor attack in a way that will capture the interest of their audience. This is a good book to offer to readers with an interest in history and, in particular, the Second World War. 2003, Gareth Stevens,
