  • Pearl Harbour and more: short stories of ww11-december 1941 by various authors is a historical fiction read. On December 7th 1941, hundreds of Japanese fighter planes carried out a devastating surprise attack on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii and changed the face of World war 11.This was a different read for me. I don't normally like war reads but I just couldn't put it down. I enjoyed all the stories I didn't have a favourite. It felt like I was there with them. Highly recomm [...]


  • This collection of eight short stories is a new issue, appropriately appearing close to Veteran’s Day and the approach of the seventy-fifth anniversary of that horrific event on December 7, 1941.I recommend this anthology after reading three well written stories that examine events just before and during that seminal dayADLY LIBERTY, by R. V. Doon tells the story of three nurses from the hospital ship Solace, anchored on “Battleship Row” in the harbor. Their liberty in Honolulu beginning o [...]


  • Taking its title from the attack on Pearl Harbour on December 7th, 1941 pivotal event that changed the face of WWII, these eight short stories are as diverse as the eight contributing authors hailing from all over the globe, each one a war-time fiction author.All so different –– set in Pearl Harbour, other parts of the USA, Singapore and Europe –– each one is enjoyable and engaging in its own way. The authors evoke a vision of the war from many different points of view: soldiers, women, [...]


  • I think historical fiction particularly lends itself to the short story format, allowing the reader to get different points of view of a particular time. This short story collection is no exception. The concept of having different tales of how one momentous event (the attack on Pearl Harbor in WWII) had such different impacts on so many people right across the globe is a clever one and is executed very well. I especially enjoyed ‘Turning Point’ by Marion Kummerow, a tense, taut story of a yo [...]


  • Thank you to the facebook book club TBConFB for the opportunity to read this book as an arc.This is a series of short stories examining the circumstances and repercussions of the Pearl Harbour bombing in Hawaii by the Japanese in December 1941. Each story is centred round the event but from a different perspective, showing the effects that were felt throughout the world when America was drawn into the second world war. Some of these stories appealed to me more than others, my two favourites were [...]


  • When you like to read about history that will most of the time mean either a non fiction history book or a novel around one or a few persons set in a historical setting. This book however are short stories that all have one thing in common: the attack on Pearl Harbour by the Japanese. Either directly witnessed by a nurse en route to her hospital ship or heard on the radio by a Jewish girl in Germany. These stories set in people's daily life make you aware of things you did not think of or read w [...]

  • I bought this because of Alexa Kang's Rose of Anzio and only read her short story, which features Jesse Garland, a character from the series. This short story in my view added to his character and while it wasn't incredibly gripping it was good to read about him again. I do wish Anzio had had him as the main character instead of Anthony and Tessa, but oh well


  • A diverse collection of WWII stories loosely connected by taking place in the same year as the Pearl Harbour attack. Some were more personally resonant, but all reflected the futility and far reaching consequences of the war and the diverse people it touched, bringing them good luck or bad but leaving none untouched. A number serve as introductions to series by the individual authors and several characters and settings will be revisited. I thought each was interesting in it’s own right and def [...]


  • Eight short stories with the theme of the Pearl Harbour attack in 1941. Every story comes from a different aspects but all equally written well. Each story is also set in different a location, which again balances the book out. I would recommend it to historical fiction lovers, although would say not history as it happened in their lifetime!


  • World War 2 has always been a period of history I've been interested in and this collection of 8 short stories, put together to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Pearl Harbour, made for a fascinating read. Beautifully written, with believable characters and situations, this is a book I would recommend to anyone who enjoys historical fiction, especially fiction set during WW2. I enjoyed all 8 stories equally and am so glad I was given the opportunity to read them.Thank you to TBC [...]


  • WARNING: Every book lovers nightmare! A book with lots of really good mini stories. However some start really good, and then end just as it gets good :( :( A great idea but such a tease!


  • This is a collection of 8 short stories based during the second world war. Although far from my usual chosen subject matter, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Each story is told from a different perspective, set within the countries involved in the war. Every tale was well told and rekindled my interest in modern history. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone whether they have an interest in WW2 or not.I volunteered to review an advance reader copy of this book.


  • I am a very big fan of history especially as it pertains to wwii which was my favourite era to study in schoolthologies such as these are hit and miss as the stories can have issues that just don't jive with the stories this specific anthology there were no misses at all which is very shocking. a very enjoyable read.


  • This book is a collection of eight stories by different authors, all set around the time of the attack on Pearl Harbour, 7th December 1941. Although I don't generally read short stories, I found this collection very interesting indeed. I have long had a fascination with World War II in any case, but I am sure that even if you don't, this would be a good read. Some authors are really good at writing short stories specifically, most of these authors were fantastic. There was one story that had a f [...]


  • This is a collection of short stories that take place at the beginning of December 1941, written to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbour, but are set in locations including France, Germany, the Far East and Ireland as well as Hawaii and the US. Before reading this book I had little knowledge of the Pearl Harbour attack or how sudden and unexpected it had been, but this book has taught me a lot, which is always a bonus when reading fiction. With eight stories from different authors s [...]


  • I love this idea--a collection of stories that give a variety of perspectives on the fateful events at Pearl Harbor 75 years ago, and how they impacted people all over the world. The diverse views of the event are especially nice, since it takes us beyond the typical story that we (probably) all know about the bombing. Since the stories are all written by different authors, some are stronger than others, and I spotted a few minor historical errors, but overall I would recommend this collection t [...]
