Pearl Harbor Ghosts (60th Anniversary Edition, Revised and Updated) : December 7, 1941. No other event in 20th century American history provoked the sense of loss, humiliation, and fear that was engendered by the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. In "Pearl Harbor Ghosts", Thurston Clarke recreates the story of this attack, vividly recreating the Hawaii of 1941 through the words and images of the people who were there. In Clarke's marvelously skilled hands, the paradise of Hawaii then and now and the events of the attack are woven into a rich tapestry of remembrance and insight, illustrating powerfully why this event still haunts our nation.
