From Booklist:

Gr. 5-9. Eyewittness testimony of Japanese and American men and women from various backgrounds enriches this balanced treatment of World War II that joins an ever-expanding assortment of books on the subject. The first-person perspectives allow for a more complex view of events as well as individuals involved in a conflict that swept people up--and nearly swept them away. Allen begins his account in Kyushu, Japan, where pilots and submarine crews train for the attack. Subsequent chapters move to Hawaii where survivors describe the bombing from the cockpit, the deck, and the shore, giving readers an emotionally charged view of the devastation. A final chapter on the aftermath of Pearl Harbor briefly notes the unjust internment of Japanese Americans and introduces readers to the USS Arizona memorial, seeing it through the eyes of one of the Japanese sailors. The first-person voices along with dozens of black-and-white photos and several full-color maps make this a draw for both browsers and World War II buffs. A time line and a bibliography are appended.
