Front Cover
M.E. Sharpe, 1991 - History - 224 pages
50 years ago, Japan attacked Pearl Harbour and brought a reluctant America into World War II.

Unlike standard histories of World War II, Never Look Back includes the Japanese perspective, bringing to light challenging facts: in Operation Flying Elephant the Japanese attempted to cause forest fires in the American West by releasing hydrogen-filled balloons.
