President Franklin D. Rooseveltâ€™s speech on December 8,
1941, lasted a mere six and half minutes. But his words and
tone-â€”in a monologue that would later be named the Infamy
Speechâ€”-sent ripples into a nation and a world that continue
even today. The historical implications that emerged from
the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor were unprecedented,
launching America not only into the depths of a dangerous
war, but forever altering the safety and comfort of everyday
living. December 8th became a day of speaking out publicly
and declaring war; of action, battle, plotting, and
victories. This dateâ€™s significance is resonant and profound
as an indelible moment in American history.
from their series on the American Civil War, bestselling
authors Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen now launch a
new epic adventure by applying their imaginations and
knowledge to the â€śDate of Infamyâ€ťâ€”-the attack on Pearl
Pearl Harbor covers the full spectrum
of characters and events from that historic moment, from
national leaders and admirals to the views of ordinary
citizens caught in the chaos of war. From the chambers of
the Emperor of Japan to the American White House, from the
decks of aircraft carriers to the playing fields of the
Japanese Naval Academy, this powerful story stretches from
the nightmare slaughter of China in the 1930s to the lonely
office of Commander James Watson, an American cryptographer,
who suspects the impending catastrophic attack. It is a
story of intrigue, double-dealing, the horrific brutality of
war, and the desperate efforts of men of reason on both
sides to prevent a titanic struggle that becomes
Gingrich and Forstchenâ€™s now critically
acclaimed approach, which they term â€śactive history,â€ť
examines how a change in but one decision might have
profoundly altered American history. In Pearl Harbor,
they pose the question of how the presence of but one more
man within the Japanese attacking force could have
transfigured the war. More than a retelling, the book also
serves as a potent warning, valid still today as an example
of what happens when communications and understanding breaks
down, and a nation is ill-prepared for the onslaught that
A compelling, meticulously researched
saga, Pearl Harbor is also a novel of valor
about those who took part in this cataclysmic moment in
world history. It inaugurates a dramatic new Pacific War
series that begins with the terrifying account of the day
that started it all.
