Focusing on O‘ahu, the hardest hit of the Hawaiian Islands during the attack, Hawaii’s World War II Military Sites provides detailed information including: 20 sites of interest, historical background of events leading up to the attack, wartime and contemporary photographs, point-by-point tours for each site, statistics of weapons and aircraft used by the Japanese, Japanese and American command structures, casualties sustained by both nations and accounts of December 7 Medal of Honor recipients. Much of the information has never been readily available to the public, some sites remain inaccesible because of security restrictions. For those who cannot visit O‘ahu, and those who lack military base access, Hawaii’s World War II Military Sites is the next best thing to witnessing first-hand these historically significant places.
