Description
Following Japan's bombing raid of the U.S. fleet in Pearl Harbor, Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed December 7, 1941, to be "a date which will live in infamy." Indeed, the events of that day ended the Great Depression, changed the course of FDR's presidency, and instantly swept America into simultaneous wars in both hemispheres. In Steven Gillon's vivid, minute-by-minute account he reveals how FDR proved both decisive and deceptive, inspiring the nation while keeping the real facts of the attack a secret from congressional leaders and the public.

"Steve Gillon combines impeccable research and historical authority with a narrative so gripping that the book reads like a thriller. This blow-by-blow account of the first 24 hours after the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor presents not only a new and detailed version of the reaction to the event but also a new and up-close vision of FDR's leadership."—Neal Gabler
