This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of Hawaii that you might want to check out.

Today is the 71st anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor [gmap]. To commemorate the date, I'm posting this map of the approximate position of the ships of the U.S.'s Pacific Fleet during the attack.

If you like fascinating reads, look into the often-ignored Niihau Incident, in which a Japanese pilot named Shigenori Nishikaichi crash-landed into Niihau after participating in the bombing.
