PHENOMENAL PRAISE FOR THE NOVELS OF NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHORS NEWT GINGRICH AND WILLIAM R. FORSTCHEN
“A thrilling tale of America’s darkest day.” —W.E.B. Griffin
“Begins what will be a fascinating alternative history of the war in the pacific.”—Roanoke Times
“The authors’ research shines in accurate accounts of diplomatic maneuvering as well as the nuts-and-bolts of military action.”—Publishers Weekly
“The authors skillfully mix historical and fictional characters in an enjoyable and thought-provoking tale.”—Library Journal
"Masterful storytelling that not only captures the heroic highs and hellish lows of that horrific day that lives on in infamy—it resonates with today’s conflicts and challenges.”—William E. Butterworth IV, New York Times bestselling author of The Saboteurs
“A politician and a novelist, each an accomplished historian in his own right, are emerging as master authors of alternative history. In this “what if” treatment of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Newt Gingrich and William Forstchen combine their talents to make the diplomacy as suspenseful as the combat, even for readers who know what happens next–or think they know.”
—Dennis Showalter, former president of the Society of Military Historians
“This book is not only a great read, it is a fascinating historical story that applies today in Iraq as it did in the Western Pacific in the late 30s and 40s.”—Captain Alex Fraser, USN (Ret.)
“Gingrich and Forstchen have done it again. Building on their successful collaboration on their Civil War trilogy that so skillfully combined real history with fiction, they have with Pearl Harbor happily inaugurated another new series. You will not want to put it down, but when you finish you will look, as I do, with great anticipation to the next book.”—Chief of Police William J. Bratton, Los Angeles Police Department
NEVER CALL RETREAT
“With each book in their ongoing alternate history cycle, Gingrich and Forstchen have gone from strength to strength as storytellers. Unabashedly, this is a work of popular historical fiction; it aspires to entertain, first and foremost, but it has passages of genuine depth and poetry which elevate it above many other specimens of its peculiar sub-genre.”—William Trotter, The Charlotte Observer
“The authors’ research is impeccable…the reader is left believing it could really have happened this way.”—Booklist
GRANT COMES EAST
“An exciting alternative history of the Civil War. Character depictions are vivid, detailed, and insightful. One of the best novels of the Civil War to appear in recent years.”—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
“Gingrich and Forstchen have produced a very readable entry into the literature of speculative history. It will be interesting, perhaps even thrilling, to see how the military strategy and political maneuvering plays out in the next installment.”—Civil War Book Review
“A good yarn. The authors provide apt historically plausible detail to give substance to the premise.”—Washington Times
“What the authors come up with is as rivetingly plausible as what they devised in the previous novel. Notably original.”—Booklist
“The Gingrich and Forstchen ‘what-if’ take on the Civil War gathers some steam. The battle scenes continue war-lovingly rendered.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Unabashedly, this is a work of popular historical fiction; it aspires to entertain, first and foremost, but it has passages of genuine depth and poetry that elevate it above many other specimens of its peculiar subgenre.”—Charlotte Observer
“Sure to become a Civil War classic to be read and remembered.”—W.E.B. Griffin, author of Retreat, Hell!
“Surprisingly plausible, written with compelling narrative force and meticulous detail.”
—The Atlanta Journal Constitution
“Gingrich and Forstchen write with authority and with sensitivity.”—St. Louis Post Dispatch
“[Gettysburg] is believable and beautifully written...every bit as good as Michael Shaara’s The Killer Angels. Not only do Gingrich and Forstchen bring the characters to life, and often horrible death, but they do so with memorable observations on the ways of war and vivid, technically accurate descriptions of frightful Civil War combat.”—The Courier Journal (Kentucky)
“An eye-opener...filled with gore, smoke, heat of battle and a surprise ending. The writing is vivid and clear. A ripping good read.”—Washington Times
“Well-executed alternative history. The authors show thorough knowledge of the people, weapons, tactics, and ambience of the civil war. A veritable feast.”—Publishers Weekly
“As historical fiction this stands beside The Killer Angels. As an alternative history of Gettysburg, it stands alone. The mastery of operational history enables the authors to expand the story’s scope. The narrative is so clear that the action can be followed without maps. And the characters are sometimes heartbreakingly true to their historical originals.”—Dennis Showalter, Former President of the Society of Military Historians
“Gettysburg is a creative, clever, and fascinating ‘what if?’ novel that promises to excite and entertain America’s legions of Civil War buffs.”—James Carville
"Absolutely brilliant! Fast-paced and filled with tension and suspense."-Oliver North, LtCol., USMC (Ret). host of War Stories on the Fox News Channel
"The authors` research shines in accurate accounts of diplomatic maneuvering as well as the nuts and bolts of military action."-Publishers Weekly--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Great historical fiction ... well researched ... well written ... lots of pages but well worth the read.
Having read several nonfiction books dealing with Pearl Harbor and the Pacific war, I found DAYS OF INFAMY interesting and insightful.
The characters are well written and the dialogue sounds like it is coming from the mouths of people in real situations in 1941.
This is great speculation on an alternative ending to the Pearl Harbor attack. It was hard to resist skipping ahead to see what the fate was of the Enterprise, Great read!!!Published 1 month ago by owag
