Usually Ships In 1-2 Business Days


It was Sunday, December 7, 1941 when normal radio programs were interrupted to announce the news that the Japanese were attacking Pearl Harbor. Though the full extent of the damage to the Pacific Fleet was unknown at the time, the report from KTU radio represented a snapshot of what was understood of the situation during those early hours. An outraged nation responded quickly. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt delivered one of the most stirring calls to action in American History referring to December 7, 1941 as a date which will live in infamy. There were many acts of heroism to follow during the War in the Pacific. Some like the Doolittle Raid was intended to be more psychological in nature. The work of the Codebreakers was behind the scenes but of incalculable importance. Australian allies shed blood with Americans at the Battle of Buna. Other Australians observed military movements from enemy held islands. Admiral Halsey said these Coastwatchers saved the Pacific for the allies. The doomed Navy fliers from Torpedo Squadron 8 at Midway. The U.S. Marines at Tarawa and Iwo Jima and the heroic American Indian Marine Code Talkers are but a few of the many examples where supreme sacrifice and selflessness won the day against terrible odds. It is these first hand audio accounts by the men who were there, that sets Voices From The Pacific War apart from any other recordings of their kind!
