Documentary Narrated by Tom Selleck
The focus of this film is on the military and civilian survivors of Pearl Harbor, all of whom had totally different experiences on December 7, 1941.
Woven into their stories is the perspective of Daniel Martinez, Chief Historian of the Valor in the Pacific Monument at Pearl Harbor and author of the acclaimed book December 1941, Craig Shirley.
This is not a film about strategy of the attack and why it happened or assigning blame 75 years later, but rather the personal stories of those who were there and witnessed history being made. It is an impartial documentary chronicling December 7, 1941 in the words of those who actually were there and took part.
