Pearl Harbor

Graphic Battles of World War II

On the quiet, sunny morning of Sunday, December 7, 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy launched a surprise attack on the U.S. Navy in Oahu, Hawaii, designed to crush and render helpless American forces in the Pacific region. Rather than crush the U.S. fighting spirit, the American public, outraged by the assault?yet previously divided over America?s role in the overseas conflict?rallied in support of the government?s decision to enter WWII against Japan.

Series Review: Graphic Battles of World War IIThis series includes well-written and illustrated accounts of several events during World War III was impressed with the illustrations and the lack of blood and gore shown during the battle scenes, which makes them suitable for younger students. These books would also work well for older students who may need to outline or high-light the important facts from a World War II battle.
