The America we live in today was born not on July 4, 1776, argues Craig Nelson, but rather on December 7, 1941, when 354 Japanese warplanes struck the naval base at Pearl Harbor, killing 2400 men, devastating the U.S. battleship fleet, and forcing America into World War II. Nelson—also the author of Rocket Men, the PEN Literary Award finalist The Age of Radiance, and the Henry Adams Prize winner Thomas Paine—maps the long road to war from both American and Japanese perspectives, beginning with then–Assistant Secretary of the Navy Franklin D. Roosevelt attending the keel-laying of the battleship Arizona in 1914. The thrilling moment-by-moment account is packed with individual experiences, and offers surprising conclusions about consequences of the attack that still resonate today.

"Readers will not regret this thick new contribution to the literature.... Nelson weaves archival research, interviews, and personal experiences from both sides into a blow-by-blow narrative of destruction liberally sprinkled with individual heroism, bizarre escapes, and equally bizarre tragedies."—Kirkus Reviews

"A valuable reexamination of the causes, the attack, and the aftermath of that seminal event.... Superbly done ... informative and poignant ... this is a worthy addition to the already voluminous studies of a history-changing event."—Booklist (starred review)

"As close to a complete history as possible of the events leading up to the December 1941 bombing.... This comprehensive account doesn't shy away from the horrors of war, successfully providing an even-handed chronicle of the events that led up to Pearl Harbor."—Library Journal (starred review)
