For six months following the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii rearmed and awaited the inevitable. Patricia O’Meara Robbins, a professional photographer, documented everyday life as the shocked Oahu community recovered from one attack and prepared for another. In Hawaii Goes to War, the Joneses skillfully interweave Carroll’s childhood remembrances and her mother’s photographs with the history of the fleet salvage operations that enabled the navy to take on the Japanese armed forces. They follow the war from Pearl Harbor to the battles of the Coral Sea that led up to the triumph of Midway.
