December 7th is National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. This year is the 75th anniversary of that fateful day in 1941 when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and six other military bases on the island of Oahu. It is important to never forget the attacks, because as the 75th commemoration website notes, the attacks “thrust America into World War II, changing Hawaii and America forever and continues to define their place in the world."
The York County Library has plenty of books — both nonfiction and fiction — that can help readers learn more about Pearl Harbor and America's involvement in WWII.
