Full of gripping drama and vibrant details, here is the intimate human story of the events surrounding that fateful day of December 7, 1941 in the glamorous tropical city of Pearl Harbor. Blending meticulous historic recreation with lively reporting, Clarke counterpoints the freeze-frame nightmare of the 1941 bombing with the disturbing realities of present-day Honolulu, where hundreds of veterans, both American and Japanese, converge each year to relive every hour of the attack. Wealthy Waikiki landowners and native Hawaiian farmers, admirals and nurses, Navy wives and government officials - all take their part in Clarke’s rich tapestry of memory and insight. In the end, Pearl Harbor emerges as a trauma that spread from Oahu to engulf the nation and the world - an event that continues to reverberate in the lives of all who experienced it.
