Osprey Trade Editions : Pearl Harbor : 60th Anniversary Edition with CD (2001)

On Sunday December 7, 1941, an excellently coordinated attack of Japanese naval aircraft and submarine forces led to the shattering of the superior US Pacific Fleet. The full might of Japanese naval aviation power was hurled against the United States as six aircraft carriers disgorged their full complements in two waves. Depending on opposing viewpoints, the attack on Pearl Harbor was either a brilliant manoeuvre by an audacious strategist or a piece of unparalleled villainy and deception by a supposedly friendly power. The attack on the home of the US Pacific Fleet precipitated the intervention of the United States into World War II, and became a key event in world history. It was a day, Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared, that would 'live in infamy'. In this specially revised 96-page edition, Carl Smith and David Aiken examine the events of that fateful day and look at why the Japanese were so successful. The expertise of David Aiken, a student of the events of 7 December 1941 with over 30 year's experience, uncovers several unknown aspects, and dispels many of the myths that have been built up around the event s of that day: A meticulous researcher, he has interviewed many veterans of the attack including Japanese pilots, US pilots, and US seaman, and has built up an unparalleled archive of incredible detail on the attack. This great value commemorative package brings together a fully revised and updated edition of Pearl Harbor and a FREE CD designed to bring Pearl Harbor to life on your screen. The accompanying CD features extracts from Osprey's web event www.essentialpearlharbor.com, as well as, film and radio footage of the devastating attack. Text by Carl Smith with illustrations by Adam Hook.
