From the Back Cover:

THE MONUMENTAL AND DEFINITIVE STUDY OF THE JAPANESE ATTACK ON PEARL HARBOR

At 7:53 A.M., December 7, 1941, America's national consciousness and confidence were rocked as the first wave of Japanese warplanes targeted the U.S. Pacific Fleet stationed at Pearl Harbor. As intense and absorbing as a suspense novel, At Dawn We Slept is an unparalleled, exhaustive account of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor that is widely regarded as the definitive assessment of the events surrounding one of the most daring and brilliant naval operations of all time. Through extensive research and interviews with American and Japanese leaders, Gordon W. Prange assembled a remarkable historical study that examines the assault that -- sixty years later -- America cannot forget.
