A Naval Institute Press Audio Book (P)1998 by the Naval Institute Press; From the Book Trapped at Pearl Harbor: Escape from the Battleship Oklahoma, ©1991 by Stephen Bower Young
"The richness of Stephen Young's authentic, believable detail makes this never-before-told story come alive and leaves no doubt that this is precisely what happened." (Cdr. Edward P. Stafford, USN (Ret.), author of The Big E)
Other than seeing old movie footage of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, I had known little of the plight of those that were there. This is the story of my parent's generation and the incredulity of their innocence at the beginning of the actual attack and their steadfast will to survive both during and after. The narrator was a perfect match as well.
This book details the suffering of the men of the men trapped inside the bowels of the USS Oklahoma. This ordeal is something that neither the history books nor the Pearl Harbor survivors talk about. It is very well written.
