    1. I actually bought my copy of this book after casually glancing at the paperback rack at the local supermarket. Non- fiction definitely is not typical of the subject matter to be found there, what with all of the bodice-buster titles and all, so I was glad I found this title there. It is a well-written homage to a famous ship which has become a national shrine, and an event which was one of the most cataclysmic in American history. None other than the "most trusted man in America", Walter Cronkit [...]



    2. The best part of this book is the recounts of life on the Arizona prior to, during, and after the attack on Pearl Harbor. However, a lot of what the men had to say is repetitive. You will have quotes for several guys confirming or stating the same thing. I feel as though there may have been a better way to present those thoughts. Overall though a great way to celebrate the men and the ship.


    3. Five stars on all of the veteran's accounts. Reading what each man was doing before, during & after December 7, 1941 was very engrossing and powerful. They truly were the greatest generation.The book itself is not very orderly and jumps around a lot with quite a bit of unnecessary repetition.Deducting two stars for that, otherwise I really enjoyed the survivor's stories of courage and valor.


    4. Tells the story of the sinking of the USS Arizona from the perspective of a number of survivors interviewed by the co-authors of the book. It also details the history of the ship's construction and it's current state as a Memorial to the men lost on her on December 7, 1941. Any student of WWII Naval history will find this an interesting read.


    5. Not the best book out there on the USS Arizona and her demise at Pearl Harbor, but accessible to the layman and well-enough written. Contains several oral histories from Arizona survivors you're nt likely to read elsewhere.


    6. Pearl Harbor was devastating. On December 17,1941 Pearl Harbor got attacked and the USS Arizona sank. This book has the story's of many men who survived and is very interesting. If you like history read this book.


    7. Good book filled with facts. At times it was hard to follow. The author jumped back and fourth between the survivors stories.
