This is a great book for children however it has a couple of factual errors...I gave it to my grandson.
This book has limited information about the bombing of Pearl Harbor, but the information it does have is good. Testimonials are included from both American and Japanese survivors of the attack. Of particular interest to me was the story of Kichiji Dewa, a crew member of the submarine I-16. He describes the launching of a midget submarine that they were carrying on their deck. Pilot Haruo Yoshino's story of his torpedo attack on the USS Oklahoma is informative as well. Also mentioned in the book is Kazuo Sakamaki, a crew member of one of the midget submarines that tried to enter Pearl Harbor. Sakamaki's submarine was damaged and lost its way. After spending many hours trying to enter the harbor, Sakamaki and his other crew member were forced to abandon their submarine. The crewman died, but Sakamaki made it to shore where he was captured by an American soldier. Sakamaki became the first Japanese prisoner of World War II.
This book is very short, but it does contain some good information, and the pictures and maps are very good. This is a good introductory book about Pearl Harbor, but I would recommend something larger for a more complete analysis of the attack.
