Название: Pearl Harbor 1941: The Day of Infamy
Авторы: Smith C., Laurier J. (Illustrator)
This slim but informative and visually attractive overview-summary of that horrible day in December 1941 is just one volume in the Praeger Illustrated Military History series, which will eventually include more than 100 titles; the first "batch" comprises 34 volumes covering battles in World War I and World War II. Subsequent volumes will include coverage of the American Civil War, the ancient world, and the Napoleonic Wars. The format will be the same in each volume: cogent discussion of commanders, makeup of the opposing forces, actual maneuvers on the battlefield, results, and the battlefield as it looks today; the target audience for each volume is the general reader who wants basic information on consequential battles throughout history. The entire series would, of course, make a marvelously comprehensive addition to a public or school library's history collection, but the librarian may find that a more realistic approach would be to order the volumes most relevant to one's specific collection and readership needs — and, certainly, the individual volumes can either stand alone or alongside a few select series mates.
