9780140157345: At Dawn We Slept: Untold Story of Pearl Harbor

Revisit the definitive book on Pearl Harbor in advance of the 75th anniversary (December 7, 2016) of the "date which will live in infamy" At 7:53 a.m., December 7, 1941, America's national consciousness and confidence were rocked as the first wave of Japanese warplanes took aim at the U.S. Naval fleet stationed at Pearl Harbor. As intense and absorbing as a suspense novel, At Dawn We Slept is the unparalleled and exhaustive account of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. It is widely regarded as the definitive assessment of the events surrounding one of the most daring and brilliant naval operations of alltime. Through extensive research and interviews with American and Japanese leaders, Gordon W. Prange has written a remarkable historical account of the assault that-sixty years later-America cannot forget. "The reader is bound to feel its power....It is impossible to forget such an account." TheNew York Times Book Review "At Dawn We Sleptis the definitive account of Pearl Harbor." Chicago Sun-Times"

From the Author:

We believe that this remains the definitive work on Pearl H.
We have continued to research this subject. As of September 1998, our conclusions remain unchanged after eighteen years. We will continue to look at recently released documents from archives in Russia and England and update when necessary.
