The USS Ward
Bought this book from Pacific Historic Parks some time back and it is a great, informative read. While the USS Ward was sunk on the 3rd anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, her gun that fired the first shot was removed in a refitting before its sinking. The gun that fired the first shot and sunk the midget sub, sits on the grounds of the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul, MN. The men that manned the Ward on December 7th were primarily from Minnesota. There was a DVD that Pacific Historic Parks used to sell called First Shot that tells more about the USS Ward but the DVD is not sold anymore. It's a great documentary. Highly recommend this book.
