I just finished "All the Gallant Men" by Donald Stratton,  I highly recommend it.  Apparently this is the first memoir by a pearl Harbor survivor.  It's a unique perspective about what it was like to be there, and learning to live through living afterwards.

I received this book from my daughter for Christmas in 2017. It is an OUTSTANDING read. In the book, Donald Stratton wasn't just a Pearl Harbor survivor, he was one of the few survivors of the USS Arizona!

 

Stratton recounts being saved by a sailor on another ship named George. After years of championing a campaign to get George a medal for his heroism, the Navy finally gave George a Bronze Star- 76 years after the action. Reading Stratton's account, it is clear the Stratton believed that George deserved much more.

This is also a good book about the same subject - Second to the last to leave the Arizona - he was in the same area as Stratton.
