“Pearl Harbor is a first-rate book by a fine historian. Steven Gillon, closely describing FDR's reactions to the Japanese attack, reminds us of the shrewdness and skill of Roosevelt’s leadership. Both erudite and fast-paced, this is a book for scholars and general readers alike.”
David B. Woolner, Senior Fellow and Hyde Park Resident Historian, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute, and Associate Professor of History, Marist College
“In this fascinating account of the first 24 hours after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Steven Gillon manages to capture not only the essence of perhaps the most critical day in twentieth century American history; but also the essence of the man who stood at the center of it all—Franklin D. Roosevelt. A brilliant piece of investigative history, Pearl Harbor tells us a great deal about the character of the President who, though unable to walk unaided, brought the United States safely through the two great crises of the modern era, the Great Depression and World War Two. This is a must read for anyone who wishes to gain a complete understanding of FDR and the nation he led.”
“Gillon paints a vivid picture….An excellent introduction to Roosevelt and his times with heavy emphasis on events surrounding Pearl Harbor.”
“Fast paced as any novel, Gillon provides readers with a dramatic examination of this crucial juncture in our history.”
“[Gillon] provides a concise and informative account of Franklin Roosevelt’s initial response to the crisis.”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
