Book Of The Day - All The Gallant Men By Donald Stratton
There's something to be said about a book that grabs your gut and never lets you go.
Donald Stratton's personal account of the "day of infamy" is one such book. As 1 of the 335 survivors assigned to the USS Arizona, All The Gallant Men is a haunting account of a man who not only survived this devastating attack, but reenlisted to continue the battle in the Pacific.
There aren't many books out there quite like this. In fact, there aren't. Donald Stratton is the only USS Arizona survivor to have written a memoir about the events of December 7, 1941 in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
The book is written in the 1st person and there's a handful of black and white photos in the middle to give you insight into life during this time period.
You can purchase this book at the Pearl Harbor bookstore, but if you're not in Hawaii, check it out on our online store! Your purchase directly helps our nonprofit to continue our mission to educate visitors, young and old, about the history, events and people connected to the attack on Pearl Harbor.
