Pearl Harbor: The Verdict of History
Penguin Books, 1991 - History - 699 pages
This book examines the underlying causes of Pearl Harbor and the revisionist theories that Roosevelt and other high officials knew about the attack. 'Pearl Harbor' uncovers the secret roles played by the president, his cabinet secretaries, admirals, and generals in the weeks before the attack. Based on more than forty years of research, extensive interviews, and an insider's knowledge of the military, this book poses a new theory of America's entry into the Pacific War.
