About this product
- DescriptionOn December 7, 1941, the Japanese Navy attacked the American Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawai'i. The perception remains that they succeeded in severely crippling the navy; however, thing could be further from the truth. Thanks to meticulous research, Daughters of Infamy puts this myth rest and shows that the vast majority of warships in the harbor suffered damage at all. Former US Navy photographer David Kilmer provides documentation on each ship that survived the Pearl Harbor massacre. He records what happened the day of the attack, then traces the ships' movements after December 7 and, in some cases, their destiny after the war. Contrary to popular belief, many met the enemy and helped to win the war in the Pacific. Undoubtedly the first work to compile factual and informative data on nearly all the ships in Pearl Harbor in December of 1941, Kilmer's in-depth record fills a scholarly void. His fascinating narrative on each ship adds ather layer of expertise and provides a new perspective on a familiar event.
