On December 7, 1941, about twenty minutes into the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, an armor-piercing bomb struck the USS Arizona," penetrating four decks before exploding. An immense fire, fed by ammunition and fuel oil, swept through the ship, instantly killing hundreds of men. The Arizona" quickly settled to the bottom of the harbor, taking most of her crew of 1,514 with her. Of the 88 Marines assigned to the battleship, only 15 survived. This account of the Arizona"'s Marines on that fateful day, the first to tell their little-known story, also covers the broader history of shipboard Marines as well as the Arizona" from her launch in World War I to the dawn of America's entry into World War II. With more than one hundred historic photographs, many never before published, Battleship Arizona's Marines at War" is a fitting tribute to the USS Arizona" and her Marines.Camp, Dick is the author of 'Battleship Arizona's Marines at War Making the Ultimate Sacrifice, December 7, 1941', published 2006 under ISBN 9780760327173 and ISBN 0760327173.
