I used it for educational and entertainment purposes. It was great the way he developed the characters and their perspective of the coming war and success of the attack and, of course, the description of the actual attack. I just finished Pearl Harbor and I have Days of Infamy but haven't read it yet. I'm sure it will take off soon after the conclusion of this book. I'm anxious to get started on it.

Most fans of alternate history books will enjoy this look at what could have happened on Dec. 7th. The authors do a good job setting up much of the real history leading up to WWII.

This was the first book I have read by Gingrich, and I'll certainly read more of his work. Even though most of us know the Pearl Harbor story, Gingrich's weaving of believable characters throughout the story keeps the reader turning the pages. The mistakes made by both the U.S. and Japan in the pre-attack months adds to the human factor that is so well portrayed. The interplay between a Japanese fighter pilot and an Allied pilot was a fascinating twist.

I truly enjoyed this book. Perhaps you must be a history buff to enjoy the detail that Gingrich and Forstchen put into the book. Basically, the book follows the lives of 3 men who would be deeply involved in the events that occurred on December 7, 1941. Their account begins much earlier, around the time of the Japanese invasion of Manchuria. The three men are a British naval Commander, retired; an American naval Commander, retired; and a young Japanese pilot who was destined to lead the first wave of the attack on the American fleet anchored at Pearl Harbor. Of these three men, only the young Japanese pilot was a real person. Mitsuo Fuchida's life as a pilot and as an officer in the Japanese naval air force was closely followed through the book. He was probably the most interesting of the 3 characters. His life didn't end with the end of the war. After the war he converted to Christianity and became an evangelist. This latter part was not covered in the book. A really great read!

Pearl Harbor is a very well written novel that captures the heart with facinating characters and plenty of action. I am looking forward to the sequel.

well written, easy read. gives a view of the lead up to WWII in the Pacific not often seen. It still doesn't excuse their attack.

Engaging story from the POV of the Japanese. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. Typical lousy ebook from B&N, full of errors; it's clear there's no editorial oversight at all. Even a cursory reading would have noted, for example, Mitsuo Fuchida being referred to repeatedly as Mitsuo Fuschia.
