Memories from the battleship Arizona

A fascinating story of one of the last remaining survivors of the U.S.S. ARIZONA . Now that Lauren has recently passed away , this makes this story even more poignant .

This was a fantastic read

I purchased this book after my family made a recent holiday to Pearl Harbour and came home with a photograph of the USS Arizona gun turrent explosion after purchasing some T-shirts and other items. Once I read the photograph story I intstantly investigated more about the book, and was thoroughlly wrapt. The book is superb and I would highly recommend it to any other veteran (although a lot younger) for a great read. I loved it. Thank you very much. It arrived in Australia super quick too from when I purchased it. Thanks again.
