Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Es fiel mir relativ schwer überhaupt irgendwelche Bücher über den Angriff von Pearl Harbor zu finden. Dieses schien mir dann am seriösten und ich habe mich hiermit tatsächlich nicht getäuscht.

Das Thema wird sehr gut aufgearbeitet, wobei sich der Autor auf den tatsächlichen Angriff konzentriert. Ein kurzes Kapitel zu der Vorgeschichte (die Beziehungen zw. Usa und Japan; Besetzung der Mandschurei; Öl-Embargo, etc.) und einen längeren Teil zur Planung gibt es auch.
Die Schlußfolgerung und Interpretation ist durchaus beachtenswert und sehr gut und schlüssig formuliert.

All das wird noch mit einigen sehr aufschlussreichen und genauen Grafiken ergänzt, die zum Beispiel die genauen Ziele der Japaner zeigen.

Insgesamt ein sehr weiterempfehlendes Buch (natürlich nur solange man dem Englischen mächtig ist) und meiner Meinung nach ist dies das beste Buch, das allein über dieses Thema geht.

An excellent summary, well illustrated 26. November 2011
Von Alan D. Zimm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is an excellect short summary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. I rate it as 5 stars for a number of reasons.

First, within the Osprey format of an 80-page book with about 40 pages of text, the text forms an outstanding summary of the events and issues of the attack. Detail is of course limited, but all the essentials are well covered. Most importantly, Stille has recognized that the attack was not the perfect effort as depicted by most historians, but had several significant flaws which greatly limited the results of the attack. Stille's concluding comments in the "Analysis" chapter, discussing the Military Impact of the attack and the Operational Level results and implications, along with his final short chapter of "Conclusions" places the attack well in context and extracts several meaningful lessons that have eluded previous historians.

Second, as with most Osprey publications, the book is well illustrated with photographs, some excellent, clear maps, and some original artwork that is quite good. I could find only one minor error in the maps: in an illustration of the routes of attack one map shows aircraft directed against Schofield Barracks, when the Barracks was not a target.

So, for a quick and fairly comprehensive summary, 5 stars, a grade assigned in recognition that, in this abbreviated format, the author did an excellent job of summarizing the events and duscussing some of the issues and controversies surrounding the attack. This book serves as an excellent beginner's primer. Hopefully it will whet the readers interest in more comprehensive or analytic works (as shown in Stille's bibliography.

In the sake of full disclosure, I will mention that I was given the priviledge of reviewing an early pre-publication copy of the manuscript, and submitting comments, based on my own research for a book on the attack. In my view, Mark Stille has done an excellent job in research and summarizing the attack, and catching most of the important issues. You might note by checking my previous reviews that I do not tolerate sloppiness or inaccuracies in naval history. Mark accomplishes much in the small format alloted, and compared to other summary and introductory publications, certainly deserves 5 stars.

A Superb Piece of Naval History 12. Januar 2012
Von R. A Forczyk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor ranks up there with D-Day and Gettysburg as one of the most covered subjects in American military history and Osprey had already covered this subject with a campaign volume in 2001. Thus readers might wonder whether Osprey's new volume in the Raid series entitled Tora! Tora! Tora! is worth buying or reading. Two words: Mark Stille. The author is a professional naval historian (who studied under Gordon Prange), a seasoned analyst and retired naval officer, which makes his narrative far more insightful and useful than many previous efforts. The author skillfully manages to tweak new facts out of existing material and pull them together into a far more coherent conclusion than you will find elsewhere, even in Prange's ground-breaking works. When you add in some of Osprey's best artwork and maps to date, the result is spectacular and this is easily one of the best Osprey volumes of 2011. Overall, a superb piece of naval history.

Tora! Tora! Tora! begins with an introduction that outlines growing US-Japan diplomatic tensions in 1940-41 and the Japanese decision to use violence to prevent U.S. efforts to block their hegemonistic ambitions in Asia. The author spends about twenty pages discussing the genesis of the Japanese plan to attack the U.S. military base at Pearl Harbor, beginning with the strategic concept and then moving into detailed tactical planning. He does a great job both depicting Admiral Yamamoto's thinking on the raid - much of which is show to be far from "brilliant" - and the `nuts `n bolts' planning and training accomplished by his subordinates. There is excellent detail on the Japanese training program for the raid, which breaks down torpedo and dive-bomber accuracy levels achieved prior to the raid. The volume also has a very nice color plate of all the aircraft types used in the raid alongside a table that lists units and targets - very nice. The author makes the interesting point that the level of training among the Japanese aviators was not universally high and that the Fifth Carrier Division pilots were not night-certified, so the Pearl Harbor raid had to await dawn to launch to accommodate them. He also raises valid questions about Yamamoto's inclusion of the midget submarine force in the plan, which risked losing the element of surprise.

The raid itself is covered in 36 pages and is supported by two 2-D maps and two 3-D BEV maps. The artwork by artist Jim Laurier (torpedo plane attack and USS Ward versus mini-sub) is stunning and captures important moments in the raid. The author dissects the raid in great detail and does so in a manner that goes beyond merely recounting well-known facts. The sloppy execution of the Japanese torpedo-plane attack is carefully analyzed and Japanese performance looks far less flawless when actual numbers of weapons expended are examined. The Japanese expected to get 27 hits out of 40 torpedoes expended, but actually got 19, with most weapons expended on only two battleships. The horizontal bombing attack was also far less effective than often depicted, with only 10 out of 49 hits against stationary warships. Only the lucky hit that destroyed the USS Arizona provided the level-bombers with any major success. Japanese dive-bombers were equally ineffective, scoring only 20 percent hits. Although the Japanese demolished a great deal of US parked aircraft and sank four battleships, the results were far from catastrophic. The author provides an analysis section at the end which spells out losses in detail. As the author concludes, "it is common wisdom to state that the attack on Pearl Harbor crippled the US Pacific fleet. This is patently untrue." He views the Japanese raid as a tactical and operational-level success but a strategic failure, which galvanized America's willingness to enter the Second World War. He also puts paid to the notion that a third strike would have made a difference or that destruction of oil storage/repair facilities would have delayed a U.S. island-hopping campaign in the Pacific. Overall, this book offers fresh insights into a well-known battle and does it superbly.

An insightful look at "The Day of Infamy" 22. Januar 2012
Von Dave Schranck - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The introduction of this small but valuable book describes Japan's lack of key resources that were hampering the country's growth, prosperity and sense of worth in the world. US-Japan relations soured in the 30s and worsen in 1940 over economic and diplomatic differences and Japan felt it was being unfairly treated.

The author then proceeds to spend a lot of time on Yamamoto who propagated the plans for the attack on Pearl and who had to overcome the considerable resistance at home for it. The description of the planning, training and preparations for this attack is then presented and for a restricted format, it can't be beat. I particularly liked the discussion of torpedo modification to accommodate the shallow draft of the harbor. The author also spends a lot of time discussing the different types of planes and bombing runs and their respective accuracy. There were three types: Torpedo, Horizontal and Dive Bombing.
There is so much more to this planning section which included the key admirals and junior officers that had major roles in this attack. Also included is the potentially massive submarine involvement for this attack and subsequent actions. There is also an interesting "Table of Organization of the Raid" which describes each attack force and the deployment of planes and sequencing of each attack.

The introduction and the planning stage of the Raid consume about 25 pages. The largest section is the Raid itself and consumes 36 pages. Mr Stille provides excellent details, within the limited space, of how the attack was delivered. He explains which planes attacked which ship and what the results were of those bombing runs. Battleship Row and the bombing of neighboring airfields receive the most attention. The author explains that for such a confined space, the Japanese pilots though causing destruction could have caused greater damage if they were better trained and coordinated on the attack runs.

Included in the Raid section were four 2-D maps, two 3-D maps and two color illustrations. The color maps were all useful but the 3-D maps showing each bombing run of the harbor were especially helpful and included a time sequence of the key events. The illustrations were as usual quite dramatic. There are also many excellent photos of the harbor, island, ships, subs etc. These photos add to the value of this book.

The book closes with the author's overall analysis and conclusions. Coverage includes Yamamoto, the reasons for the attack, the benefits and reversals of the attack and the future impact of the proscecution of this new war, alternative actions Japan could have taken etc. Very insightful
Mr Stille is critical of Yamamoto's reasons for the attack and Japan's wishful hope that the US would be intimidated to quickly sue for peace. Yamamoto over emphasizes Japan's might and importance and completely underestimates the US response. This shortsightedness of a few would prove extremely harsh on the Japanese people.

Mr Stille who is a 30 year naval veteran and historian has become a prolific, talented author. Even if you have read about the attack on Pearl Harbor and its neighboring airfields before including the earlier Osprey Campaign, I would still highly recommend you read this book. You may find some new insights that will give you a better understanding of this pivotal event.

Another triumph for Stille and Osprey 12. Dezember 2011
Von Harvey Trabb - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is perhaps the best single "small" book I have yet seen on the Pearl Harbor operation. Stille is clear, comprehensive, and insightful in his text and careful with his selection of illustrations and captions. The text is, however, inconsistent in its rendering of Japanese names; some are presented in the correct Japanese form (family name first, then given name) while others are presented reversed, in Western style. There are one or two minor proofreading errors, but they don't detract from this overall excellent book. The earlier reviewer made the main points about this book in fine style, so I won't repeat them here. But I do want to say that in more than 50 years of reading about this attack, and in having had the opportunity to visit Pearl Harbor twice, this new volume is the clearest, most concise treatment of the events of Dec. 7, 1941, that I have encountered. Osprey is to be congratulated for its support of popular history over the years, with this book moving the "bar" of excellence even higher. In sum, Mr. Stille gets it right; I give this book my highest recommendation.

A straightforward overview of an infamous event. 3. Mai 2013
Von Ned Middleton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
It would not be unreasonable to suggest that, for those who know little or nothing about the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, this book would be an excellent place to start.

Laid out in a straightforward manner, author Mark Stille starts right at the very beginning before carefully - and very skilfully, building on each nugget of information until he provides a complete overview of this infamous event.

Commencing with the origins to the Japanese expansion programme, we learn that the mistrust between Japan and the USA is traced back to 1914. From here we are informed of the initial battle strategy which was already in place when Yamamoto entered the picture. Only now did this Japanese commander study the ways in which an attack could be successfully launched and even had other admirals study the plans. Almost the whole of 1941 was then spent in revising those plans and putting the various training programmes and other means of preparation into place before the final arrangement emerged - which also included the involvement of submarines.

Eventually, of course, the attack took place and, in a carefully detailed explanation, we are taken through each element of the attack from approach, commencement, inbound aircraft, first attack force, torpedo bombers, horizontal bombing attacks, Battleship row, attacks on airfields, midget submarines, second attack force, dive-bombers, the US air response and the US Navy response. After that, of course, it was all over and we now find an account of the losses from both sides.

In a final section headed `Analysis' we are able to consider the Military impact of this surprise attack and the controversy which followed. In short, this book is a straightforward overview of a famous event which is well illustrated with historic mostly B&W photos throughout. I was also particularly impressed with the artwork which includes an excellent painting of USS Ward engaging a midget submarine and another which portrays the underbelly of a Japanese aircraft as its torpedo is released towards Battleship row. The maps do much to explain the attack and the problems of defending static ships in such a confined space. Finally, there are 6 colour plates showing side profiles of the different Japanese aircraft used on the day.

As I said at the beginning, an excellent starting point for those with an interest in the subject.
