ea. vol: Penguin. 2001. photogs. bibliog. index. pap. $20.95.HIST Prange's twin volumes offer everything you always wanted to know about Pearl Harbor but were afraid to ask, plus pictures! Together, these tomes comprise an exhaustive study of the day that will live in infamy. Prange takes a long, hard look at President Roosevelt's relationship with Japan and implies that FDR all but goaded the empire into bombing the Hawaiian base. With the 60th anniversary of the attack approaching, there no doubt will be many volumes released and rereleased, but these are among the best.

Even so, it is an excellent read for anyone serious interested in the attack. I would reccommend "A Matter of Honor" after reading this book for a really full view of events leading up to the attack.
Japanese and American sides and is about the year leading up to the attack. It is not your usual book of war action like others I have read but rather one written about the military planning and diplomatic activities leading up to our country declaring war on Japan. It is fascinating to hear the names of those involved in the planning of the attack and to get inside their brains. On the other hand it is interesting to read of the differing views of the American key players with regard to our unpreparedness regarding Japan's intended aggression. If you are looking for fascinating historical behind the scenes reading this book gives one an up close and personal account of the key players of on both the Japanese and American sides of the event.
