Pearl Harbor by Paul DowswellThis book describes the events which took place on the day of Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor which led to the USA entering the Second World War on the side of the Allies. It also looks at the build up to the attack, including Japan's motives, and then goes on to examine the legacy of the attack and how the war in the Pacific played out until the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima which ended World War II. Throughout the book moment-in-time panels bring a sense of immediacy to the reader by using eye-witness accounts of certain events. Including photographs to really bring the subject to life.
'a factual, well photographed book...There is a lot of detail, but as there are so many pictures and illustrations, the information is broken up into manageable chunks.'
