Publisher's Summary

Author Stephen Young was a seaman first class assigned to gunnery duty in turret no. 4 on the battleship Oklahoma when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The battleship was struck by several torpedoes and began to sink, trapping Young and others when it overturned. With incredible realism, Young recounts this terrifying experience, recalling the frantic search for an escape route, the horror of finding the exit blocked, and such unforgettable detail as the water's inexorable rise, the sickening taste of fuel oil, the foul smell of the air, the nervous wisecracks, and finally the silence as the possibility of rescue became ever more remote.

    "Interesting and well narrated"

    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.

    "Unwritten history"

    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.
