Pearl Harbor Remembered In New Book

U.S. Navy

Wednesday December 7th marks the 75th anniversary of the bombing of the American fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. 

The attack launched the U.S. involvement in World War II. 

But there's a story to be told about the events that led up to that day, and Craig Nelson tells the story in his book Pearl Harbor: From Infamy to Greatness

The work starts long before Pearl Harbor, during the days of the First World War, to detail the events and trends that led to the second.  The author visits to talk about his studies.
