Taken from the pages of The Saturday Evening Post, this commemorative issue brings to life the “date which will live in infamy,” portraying a deeply divided nation that overnight united in a spirit of solidarity rarely seen before or since. This beautiful coffee-table quality keepsake includes:
- An hour-by-hour account of the battle and first-person accounts of the attacks on Pearl Harbor and the Pacific islands.
- Why and how we were surprised by the attack.
- A chronicle of sweeping changes on the homefront — surging voluntary enlistment, civil defense, and rationing; massive increases in production to build ships, planes, and tanks on a scale previously unthinkable; and more.
- Illustrations by Norman Rockwell and others, including wartime depictions of soldiers on leave, female factory workers, our youth volunteer corps, and more.
- Wartime cartoons and advertisements.
- Photographs that capture the drama of the battle itself as well as scenes from the homefront.
