Equally sneaky was the special forces unit known as the Beach Jumpers. Led by movie star turned military captain Douglas Fairbanks Jr., the team specialized in mimicking an invasion fleet with only 10 small boats.

Attack on Pearl Harbor : the true story of the day America entered World War II by Shelley Tanaka( Recording )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In [this book], four people are introduced and followed: Peter Nottage, a Caucasian seventh-grade boy; Mitsuo Fuchida, Commander of the Japanese Fleet; George DeLong, a seaman aboard the USS Oklahoma; and Kazuo Sakamaki, midget submariner, who became the first prisoner of war taken by the U.S. The account of the attack is basically accurate, but gives not a hint of Yamamoto's extensive planning. The text implies that most of the U.S. servicemen stationed in Hawaii were either drunks or ill prepared as soldiers and sailors when, in reality, they were unsuspecting and uninformed. No mention is made of the information that Washington was later found to have withheld from military leaders stationed there.-School Library Journal. Early on the morning of December 7, 1941, the Empire of Japan launched a massive surprise attack on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. Two brief and terrible hours later, much of the American fleet lay sunk or burning, 2,388 Americans were dead, and the United States and Japan were at war. [In the book, the author] re-creates every harrowing and heroic moment through the memories of young people who were actually there. [She] explains everything from what led to the attack to its lasting impact on our world today.-Dust jacket
