Product Description

Publishers Note :While fishing on a rowboat, Adam Pelko sees Japanese fighter planes racing across the sky and dropping bombs on the U.S. fleet in Pearl Harbor, and when he gets back to shore, he sees that his father's battleship, the U.S.S. Arizona, is gone and begins to fear the worse. 10,000 first printing.Muze Annotation :Fourteen-year-old Adam's military family recently transferred to Hawaii, and he copes as best he can with his first civilian school. His father, an extremely authoritarian Navy lieutenant, insists that Adam drop his new friendship with a Japanese-American classmate--Adam's father is afraid the association will damage his naval career. Adam disobeys this edict, and on the morning of December 7, 1941, Adam and his classmate are fishing in a rowboat in Pearl Harbor. A bullet from a low-flying Japanese plane grazes Adam during the surprise attack, and he watches his father's ship sink. He's mistaken for a sailor and ordered to help rescue men from the shattered ships, and finds himself immersed in the blood-drenched nightmare of devastation. An afterword details the logistics of the attack.
