"THIS IS NO DRILL" The history of NAS Pearl Harbor and the Japanese Attacks

by J. Michael Wenger, Robert J. Cressman, and John F. Divirgilio

"This Is No Drill" is a detailed combat narrative of the 7 December 1941 Japanese attack on NAS Pearl Harbor—then one of two naval air stations on the island of O‘ahu. Since the station served as a base for long-range patrol aircraft, the Japanese aimed to put NAS Pearl Harbor out of action to prevent U.S. planes from searching for their carrier force.

The work of these three scholars focuses on descriptions of actions in the air and on the ground at the deepest personal and tactical levels, from both the American and Japanese perspectives, with many of the photos from Japanese sources appearing in print for the first time.

This accumulation of data and information makes possible an intricate story that is unparalleled in its scope. The interwoven narratives of both sides provides the sort of in-depth understanding of the events at NAS Pearl Harbor that would have been impossible to present previously.

Hardcover: 288 pages.

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.
