At Dawn we Slept is one of the best histories I have read in a long time. Twenty-five years has not dimmed its brilliance. The cat and mouse game between American and Japanese intelligence reads like a thriller. The actual attack is given about 50 pages of the book. The author was focused on finding out the deeper truths and lessons of Pearl Harbor. Gordon W. Prange spent decades researching the book and interviewed most of the survivors on both sides. He was fair and balanced in his judgments and conclusions. He died before the book was published but his analysis is sobering to read in a time when the US faces dangers on many fronts. I wonder how many members of the Bush Administration have seen and understood this book. Iraq leads me to suspect not many have.

This is probably the finest book written about the attack at Pearl Harbor. Gordon Prange's intense research, aided ably by Donald Goldstien and Katherin Dillon, brings the attack to life in a way few authors can. I would recommend this book to any student of history to see how a book like this SHOULD be written.

My 12 year old son was born a war history buff. His favorite being WWII. This came hightly recommended by a co-worker so I got it for my son for Christmas. He sleeps with it and reads it a little bit each night before bed. It is a lot... but priceless!

Almost mind boggling the amount of detail this piece of work presents about Pearl Harbor and the events surrounding the attack. A must read for those interested in learning about the attack that officially drew the United States into WWII.

I promise that you will never find another WWII history text as well researched and level headed as this one. The detail is comprehensive - if anything of importance happened with respect to the Pearl harbor attack, I guarantee you that it's in this book. It makes most other accounts seem thoroughly amateurish.

This novel, written by the peerless authority of Anglo-Japanese conflict in the pacific, is riviting and thorough. Mr. Prange tells the complete story of the most momentous day in American history of the twentieth century. So complete was Mr. Prange's knowledge that he was hired as the script and on set advisor of the motion picture,'Tora, Tora, Tora.' This is a must read for anyone who loves military history, American history, or history in general.

This had to be the best book I know of about Pearl Harbor! Hard to put it down.

The complete account of Pearl Harbor, from both sides of the Pacific Ocean. I have read this account three times since 1993, and each time was better than the previous.

Fact upon fact portrayed in in a well-written story. A must for the history buff.

This is an excellent history book about Pearl Harbor. It gives details upon details about events prior to, during, and after the attack. I give it my highest recommendation.

Anyone who might wish to write a book or article about Pearl Harbor should read this book ... and then give up the notion that they can add anything of significance.
