    Please send me or another staff member your candidates for this thread.

    First, the fundamental information regarding the attack:

    PDF copies of the Pearl Harbor Attack Hearings before Congress

    Thirty-nine volumes of testimony and copies of documents regarding the US and Japanese actions prior to and during the attack. This includes all prior investigations and the exhibits presented them. There is also a copy of the findings of the Congressional Investigation, referred to as the "summary volume" or the "fortieth volume".

    Also of interest is The "Magic" Background To Pearl Harbor

    This is a compilation of MAGIC intercepts with contextual comments to help us understand what the message refers to.

    http://www.ibiblio.org/pha/CarrierChartE.jpg

    This shows the track of the Kido Butai (Striking Force) and the tracks of the two USN carriers operating out of Pearl at that time. All USN data is taken from the deck logs of the carriers.

    I have "broken out" the Exhibits submitted to the Congressional Investigating Committee. Four thousand, five hundred, and fifty pages of information. (Some of the Exhibits point at the earlier investigations.)
