Publisher's Summary

After their New York Times best-selling series on the American Civil War, Newt Gingrich and William Forstchen now turn to the events leading up to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and examine how different decisions might have profoundly changed the history that unfolded. Poignant and rich with memorable characters - from the Japanese Naval Academy to the British garrison at Singapore and the Americans at Bataan - Pearl Harbor is the account of the day that started the war for the Pacific. Layering historical facts with fictional characters, political motives, and Western/Eastern theories, Gingrich and Forstchen once again prove their strength as historians and storytellers.

A great experiance - well done

This book is great. It?s not just for history buff?s or Americans (indeed my 17 year old daughter found it interesting on a trip to Bristol down the M5). It reads just like thriller. And the very unique style does draw you in to the story. It works on several levels and I will be looking for more. Get it, and enjoy it
