Night of Infamy One Man's Pearl Harbor SC

by John W. Thomas

On the night of December 7, 1941, after several hours of fruitless searching for the Japanese task force that had bombed Pearl Harbor that morning, six Grumman Wildcat fighters were denied landing back aboard the USS Enterprise due to fear of the ship being spotted if it lit up its flight deck. Ordered to go into Pearl Harbor instead, the planes were mistaken for the enemy when they arrived and were subjected to a hail of "friendly" fire from trigger-happy gunners manning ship and shore artillery in the harbor. Three of the pilots were killed and only one, Ensign Jim Daniels, managed to land his plane unscathed. This is his story.

Softcover. 65 pages. Printed in Hawaii.

Perfect

Everything was perfect. My husband is a Veteran and enjoyed this gift very much. Thank you.

Enjoyed the book I always like reading real history.
One of the cups was completely destroyed, sent you an email when received got no reply, not happy on this
Got no geek patch or black tears.
What I did get intact (book & 1 cup) proved to be quite expensive…………

Loved it so much we bought it twice

My parents brought this shirt back as a souvenir for my 4 year old daughter. She wore it constantly until the day she discovered scissors 😭. She cut it up and was so proud of herself until I freaked out, then we both cried… I would usually take this opportunity to teach a lesson about scissors and say “sorry, you’re SOL.” But this gift was so loved and I felt she learned her lesson when she realized she had ruined it rather than improving it.

Great quality sticker

I bought it to put with my photo book and keepsakes from my trip to visit this incredible memorial.

Great coin

Just a beautiful tribute to those who served at Pearl Harbor on that fateful December 7th.
