Among the reviews for Day of Deceit, is one by someone that reports that his grandfather was in the Dutch Indonesian army, who reports that Dutch and British Naval intelligence were surprised by our being caught by surprise at Pearl Harbor, as they had been telling their American counterparts that a Japanese Naval Task Force was steaming toward Hawaii. Do you suppose that with the Freedon of Information Act we could find out who received and saw these warnings? The author of this book did not have this information. But a lot more is available today.

As the other reviewers have averred, these are facts not covered in most high school, or even university level history courses. And yet, facts they are. Tansill proves his premise by the usage of extensive primary material from US State Department files, current periodicals, and sound reasoning. His writing is economical, and compelling. Though a very long book of well over six hundred pages, Tansill make the long journey both enjoyable, and well worth the effort.
This is a very important, excellently crafted, and thoroughly enjoyable history. We strongly recommend it to all who would know justice and love mercy, while yet there is time.
This is an excellent read.
