Long before the infamous day of December 7, 1941 when Pearl Harbor was attacked, it was a tropical lagoon fed by streams that flowed down from O'ahu's mountains. Known to Hawaiians as Pu'uloa, it was once home to an extensive system of fishponds that provided a rich and plentiful bounty.
Fast forward to 1940 when the U.S. headquartered its Pacific Fleet there. By 1941, America was on war footing, with Hawai'i at the helm as the central defense post of the western front.
Pearl Harbor, Images of An American Memorial provides a view of the region's past, from geologic origins to fishpond days, through the tense moments before and after the attack, and the years of reflection and repair right up to the present.
Filled with rare photographs, Pearl Harbor is shown as it once was, providing a context to the events of the "date which will live in infamy."
