Book Review: December 1941By Craig Shirley

December 1941, 31 Days that Changed America and Saved the World By Craig Shirley is a historical retelling of the entire month of December in 1941.

Today is the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, sadly many people do not remember this anniversary any longer. When I had the opportunity to read this book I knew it was a great chance to learn more about what it was like so I could pass it on to my children. And Craig Shirley does not disappoint.

He presents the material in a daily chronological order. Each chapter is a day in the month of December 1941, with information gathered from many sources including local papers, magazines, radio and diaries, the reader is transported to 1941 and gets a first hand reading of what people where saying.

If you have an interest in understanding what it was like in America during this crucial time, this is the book for you. This book should be used as a history text book in schools, ever home school family should spend time reading this book with their children. Every American should know what it was like to live in December 1941 and how much it changed life in America.

Remember those that fell and served in Pearl Harbor on this day and live through their sacrifice every day of the year.
