FROM FISHPONDS TO WARSHIPS PEARL HARBOR Books
Pearl Harbor provides a sweeping 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. A valuable resource for anyone interested in Pearl Harbor, it is a colorful work filled with rare photographs documenting the key military figures involved and the intense battle. Wartime posters, advertisements andn propaganda are also included, along with a nostalgic look at life in wartime Hawaii. To most people, Pearl Harbor is seen through a window of catastrophe, forever frozen in time as the “date which will live in infamy.” But the years leading up to and following the surprise attack are rarely examined, and this rich history is often missed. From Fishponds to Warships: Pearl Harbor not only gives a detailed visual account of the catastrophic raid, but it provides a much-needed context foro the event, examining the circumstances which brought this once-tranquil lagoon into the international spotlight.
