The year 2001 marks the 60th anniversary of the United States' entry into World War II, an event precipitated by Japan's devastating surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. At Dawn We Slept is a masterful work, 37 years in the making, that tells the story of Pearl Harbor from both the American and Japanese perspectives. It's a crucial piece of history, and a gripping, richly textured human drama as well. Pearl Harbor: The Verdict of History places the attack in a larger context via a close and compelling examination of its precursors and consequences. Dec.7, 1941 is the culmination of Prange's brilliant study of Pearl Harbor: a riveting, moment-by-moment account that captures the diplomatic intrigue, the brutal combat, and the human beings, on both sides of the battle, whose lives were irrevocably altered on that fateful morning. Absorbing, enlightening, and unstintingly dramatic, this commemorative boxed set is as relevant to those who remember what FDR called "a day that will live in infamy" as it is to younger people just learning about this vital chapter in American history.
