Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
". . . .well researched and gives a very clear picture of how and why the Pearl Harbor myth was created."

"Victor's book is long on evidence and data and will give even experts in the history of the Pearl Harbor disaster much to think about—and to rethink."

“A very informative addition to recent literature that reveals the consequences from mismanagement of intelligence information in Washington that permitted the attackers to achieve surprise. Dr. Victor provides unique information on President Roosevelt’s policy formulations and implementing actions against Japan that paralleled his many initiatives to enter the war against Hitler. Highly recommended.”

“I came to this reading belonging to the skeptical school of thought regarding Washington’s alleged prior knowledge of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Yet after reading this book, I am moved, at the very least, to strongly reconsider my previous reflexive rejection of this thesis. The Pearl Harbor Myth succeeds in putting in an accessible form the more tangible aspects of the various conspiracy theories. Instead of dwelling on extremes of speculation, it contents itself with arranging and pointing out the more undisputable evidence in a global context. In this sense, it may set the framework for future Pearl Harbor debates.”
