The tragic sight of the USS Arizona burning after the attack on Pearl Harbor is etched in the collective memory of the United States citizens that lived through that infamous day. The ship sustained more losses in one day than any other ship in the U.S. Navy’s history—1,177 men. Now available in paperback, Battleship Arizona describes in detail the battleship’s twenty-five-year career, including the attack at Pearl Harbor, via the riveting stories of her survivors. Paul Stillwell draws on nearly one hundred interviews of former crewmen and countless official documents to present a full history of the famous warship.

Praise
  • “This study of Pearl Harbor's most famous casualty is less a biography of a warship than a sympathetic profile of the crew and their activities. . . . The story of the ship’s career is presented in profusely illustrated detail. Stillwell conducted numerous interviews with Arizona veterans and ends up with a captivating group portrait of officers and enlisted men. He also provides highly readable insight into the swagger and professionalism that made up the once-invincible ‘Battleship Navy.’” —Library Journal
