The Way It Was: Pearl Harbor, The Official Photographs by by Donald M. Goldstein, Katherine V. Dillon, J. Michael Wenger, 1991
Synopsis: “At long last, the familiar and overused photographs of the “Day of Infamy” can be retired. The 430 prints in this new and welcome collection were gathered from various Japanese and U.S. sources, and most have never been seen by the general public. The majority were taken during the height of the air raid itself, many from Japanese cockpits.
Along with numerous maps and sketches, they are arranged according to the various phases of the battle and are supplemented with commentary by two of Gordon Prange’s coauthors (Goldstein and Katherine V. Dillon). The overall effect is to give the reader an uncanny sense of being present at the battle.”—Library Journal
