Product description

Product Description

Hours after the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, Billy Gene Baker of the U.S.S. Rigel wrote a letter to his family and friends describing the infamous situation. He transcribed the letter into a journal, which is what you'll find in the pages of this book, commemorating 75 years since America's entry point into World War II. As Randolph Baker describes in the Introduction, "My father's account ... has unique value in th simple fact that he was only one of a handful of young men who witnessed the attack firsthand and lent his thoughts to paper almost immediately."

In addition to the account of the attack, this book includes other journal entries and letters to family from Baker -- a rare inside look at the day-to-day life of a soldier stationed at Pearl Harbor before, during, and after.

The family of Bill Baker welcomes you to read the entire handwritten journal at no cost via this URL: http://c-bake.com/pearlharborbook

Likewise, entries for Dec. 7, Dec. 9 and Dec. 31, 1941 are available at no cost here: http://c-bake.com/billbakerpearlharbor
