      His aim: to send aircraft carriers to Pearl Harbor in order to crush U.S. naval power and traumatize the unsuspecting nation. Implacable determination and total secrecy were crucial to success. In this “riveting” (Los Angeles Times) account of the days leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Steve Twomey “infuses a well-known story with suspense” (The New York Times Book Review), offering a poignant new perspective on the most infamous day in American Washington, DC, in late November , admirals composed the most ominous.

      Today, on the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Curator Laurence Burke took a step back and explored the long and complicated history that led up to the Japanese attack. Burke, to an audience outside the Museum’s Sea-Air Operations gallery, said the story of Pearl Harbor often focuses on the events of December 7, , but not what happened before the day that. All the American ships damaged at Pearl Harbor were in service at war’s end except the Arizona, Oklahoma, and Utah, whereas the U.S. later sank all the Japanese ships at Pearl Harbor. In retrospect (and hindsight is always 20/20) there were clues of an impending attack and mistakes made in failing to notify Hawaii as quickly as officials.

    Some people wait to book until they arrive thinking that they will get a better price. There are no last minute rates on Pearl Harbor tours. The price that you pay on Pearl Harbor Oahu is the same or lower than the rate that you will pay at your hotel or elsewhere. If a company claims to offer discount Pearl Harbor tours, you should be wary. This is a probing narrative of the history which came to its climax at Pearl harbor; an account of the attitudes and actions, of the purposes and persons which brought about the war between the United States and Japan. It is full and impartial.
