Description

Blast back to the past and learn all about the attack on Pearl Harbor.

When people think about Pearl Harbor, things like WWII and Japan may come to mind. But why did the attack occur, and what happened as a result? This engaging nonfiction book, complete with black-and-white interior illustrations, will make readers feel like they've traveled back in time. It covers everything from the history of WWII to the details of the attack, and more. Find out interesting, little-known facts such as how the U.S. aircraft carriers that the Japanese had planned to attack weren't on base at the time, and how the surviving structure of one of the U.S. ships still leaks fuel to this day. The unique details, along with the clever interior illustrations, make this series stand out from the competition.
