My Pearl Harbor Scrapbook–Review & Giveaway

Do you have any military history buffs in your family?  If so, then you NEED this book for your personal library.


My Pearl Harbor Scrapbook – A Nostalgic Collection of Memories, by Bess Taubman is an amazing little reproduction scrapbook with hundreds of old photographs, maps, telegrams, newspaper clippings, hand-typed notes and letters, medals, pins, buttons and treasures from the era.


I can’t begin to tell you how much my family has enjoyed this book.  Olivia is a huge history buff, so the little mementos and factoids are right up her alley.  I’m amazed at how much we’ve all learned from reading and pouring over the photos in this book.  Here are a few sample photos (from the editor with permission to use).





This is one of those books that stays on the coffee table. Guests and family members regularly pick it up, sparking a great dialogue on history.  By far this is one of the favorite books we have in our collection.


In honor of Pearl Harbor (and with today being December 7), I’m giving away one (1) free copy of My Pearl Harbor Scrapbook -  A Nostalgic  Collection of Memories.   To enter, simply leave a comment below, and be sure you leave a way for me to contact you.   The give away ends at midnight on December 13, and I’ll draw a random winner on December 14.   Winner will be notified by email, and must respond within 48 hours.


I was given a free copy of this book for review purposes only. I received no other compensation, nor was I required to write a positive review.

Pin It!


  1. You are awesome!

  2. My grandpa was on the Island when it was bombed. He was in the army and saw the planes flying over. He actually filmed it, but the government took the film, so every time I see footage of the planes, I wonder if it's the film my grandpa took!

    1. Oh wow! What a shame the government took it from him!
