9781410408136: Days of Infamy (Basic)

America is still reeling after epic events in Hawaii. The legendary admiral Bill Halsey is pitted against the notorious gambler Admiral Yamamoto—who has launched a fateful “third-wave attack” on the island of Oahu—in a battle of wits, nerve, and skill. Meanwhile, the hunt for the Japanese fleet is on... Days of Infamy stars an amazing array of characters—from President Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill, and the two great admirals to the U.S. pilots bravely facing the vastly superior Imperial Japanese Navy. A military tour de force, Gingrich and Forstchen’s “what if” novel is as much an homage to the survival of the real Pearl Harbor attack as it is a bold and thrilling take on America’s entry into World War II.
