I've seen a few of those previously, the USS Shaw magazine explosion has been widely published, but many of the others are new to me. Where did you find them?

A mate sent me a PowerPoint with them on, and I thought that they were historically speaking, fantastic to look at.  ;)

What were some of the statistics of the raid?
Ships sunk or damaged beyond repair?
Number of attacking aircraft?
Lives lost, both sides?

"Origins:   These images appear to be genuine photographs of the Japanese attack on American military forces at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on 7 December 1941, but not as claimed in the accompanying text all of them pictures taken by a sailor with a Brownie camera that remained undiscovered in a footlocker for many decades.

For a "sailor" to have snapped pictures from all the perspectives shown above, he would had to have been in the harbor aboard his ship, on the ground at Hickam army airfield, and aloft in an airplane all while the attack was in progress. Moreover, the ship on which this wide-rangng sailor supposedly served, the first USS Quapaw, wasn't even built until well after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Most (if not all) of these images are readily identifiable as archival photos that have been available since the early 1940s and have appeared in countless articles and books about the Pearl Harbor attack. "

You know, I had my suspicions about some of that, so I left a lot of the bumpf concerning said sailor that came with it off. I should have 'snopesd' it before hand.
Still, very interesting and historical photos anyway, and I've not seen any of them before as far as I'm aware.
