“Craig Shirley’s December 1941 is a riveting narrative history of America in the crucible of the Second World War. A real page turner. Highly recommended.” - Douglas Brinkley, Professor of History at Rice University and New York Times bestseller of The Wilderness Warrior
""As ever, Craig Shirley has given us a compulsively readable history of great sweep and startling detail. The month in 1941 he has chosen to chronicle did indeed change the way we live now, the way we will live as long as liberty is the organizing principle and animating spirit of America."" - Jon Meacham, best-selling author of American Lion and Franklin and Winston
“It is terrific . . . tremendous report on that decisive month which changed America and the world.” —Newt Gingrich
