"No One Avoided Danger" is a detailed combat narrative of the 7 December 1941 Japanese attacks on NAS Kaneohe Bay, one of two naval air stations on the island of O'ahu. Partly because of Kaneohe's location--15 air miles over a mountain range from the main site of that day's infamous attack on Pearl Harbor--military historians have largely ignored the station's story. Moreover, there is an understandable tendency to focus on the massive destruction sustained by the U.S. Pacific Fleet. The attacks on NAS Kaneohe Bay, however, were equally destructive and no less disastrous, notwithstanding the station's considerable distance from the harbor. The work focuses on descriptions of actions in the air and on the ground at the deepest practical, personal, and tactical level, from both the American and Japanese perspectives. Such a synthesis is possible only by pursuing every conceivable source of American documents, reminiscences, interviews, and photographs. Similarly, the authors sought out Japanese accounts and photography from the attacks, many appearing in print for the first time. Information from the Japanese air group and aircraft carrier action reports has never before been used. On the American side, the authors also have researched the Official Military Personnel Files at the National Personnel Records Center and National Archives in St. Louis, Missouri, extracting service photographs and details of the military careers of American officers and men. The authors are among the first historians to be allowed access to previously unused service records. The authors likewise delved into the background and personalities of key Japanese participants, and have translated and incorporated the Japanese aircrew rosters from the attack. This accumulation of data and information makes possible an intricate and highly integrated story that is unparalleled. The interwoven narratives of both sides provide a deeper understanding of the events near Kane'ohe Bay than any previous history.… (mais)

Going into this work, the extent of my knowledge of NAS Kaneohe Bay was that it was a seaplane base, and suffered as much from the shock and chaos of December 7 as any other American military and naval organization on that day. Coming out, I think it's safe to say that the authors have left no stone unturned in detailing the personal experiences of those caught up in the attack. I was also struck with how new Kaneohe was at the time; the property it being built on having only been acquired in 1939, and construction was ongoing. I look forward to reading the companion books on Hickam Field and NAS Pearl Harbor, and hope a book on Wheeler Field is added to the set. ( )

The book No One Avoided Danger is a person-by-person account of the Japanese attack on the Naval Air Station (NAS) at Kaneohe Bay on 7 December 1941. The authors have scoured official documents and after-action reports, personal accounts both written and verbal, letters, and memoirs of the defenders and the attackers to assemble an almost minute-by-minute account of the air strike and its immediate aftermath.

The book is written in chronological order and the individuals make their “entrances and exits on the stage” in the same fashion. In addition to the text, wherever possible, the authors have included photographs of the individual whose exploits are being recounted as well as contemporary pictures of the action being described. Thus, while the length of the book is 150 pages the actual text only occupies about 64 of those pages. In addition to the text there are 17 pages of copious notes covering every aspect of the book text.

The book does an excellent job of describing the events of that day and the combination of text and pictures does hold the reader’s interest. The attack on NAS Kaneohe can be viewed as a side show to the main Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor but it was just a deadly and all of the elements of surprise, death, heroism, mistakes, etc. that are part of every account of Pearl Harbor were present at Kaneohe. I think the book is a fine addition to the histories about the events in Hawaii on that fateful day in December.

(Text Length - 150 pages, Total Length - 181 pages. Includes 17 pages of notes, copious photographs, a bibliography and an index) (Book Dimensions inches LxWxH – 8.5 x .5 x 11) ( )
