Publisher's Summary

Pearl Harbor is in utter chaos after the unexpected third strike by Imperial Japanese Naval Air Forces, ordered into the attack by Admiral Yamamoto. A victory has been achieved, but is it total victory?Yamamoto is horrified to discover that the Foreign Ministry office of his government has utterly failed in their promise to insure that a proper declaration of war be delivered to America prior to the opening of hostilities. As someone who has spent years in America, Yamamoto perhaps more than any other military man serving "His Imperial Majesty" knows that America's response, rather than one that might have led eventually to a negotiated settlement, will be instead a bitter push for total war.Japan's only hope for victory now is to pursue a ruthless and total assault on the remaining American assets in the Pacific region, to hammer "the slumbering giant" into a willingness to negotiate. But Admiral Halsey is en route to Pearl Harbor for his counterstrike.... And so begins the next installment of this amazing series. Filled with historical figures - F.D.R., Admiral Halsey, General MacArthur, and a host of well-realized and developed fictional characters - Gingrich and Forstchen have once again established themselves as master craftsmen. A compelling, meticulously-researched saga, Days of Infamy continues the dramatic Pacific War series that began with the New York Times best-selling Pearl Harbor.

Wonderful

After Pearl Harbor, an audio book I loved, I couldn't wait for the sequel. I loved it. Bring on the next one. I do feel that the fortunes of war seem to be favoring the Japanese, however. Why are only our bombs and torpedos duds?

Utter Joy

I enjoyed these novels by Gingrich and Forstchen almost as much as the civil war series by the two. Although I will say I did enjoy the civil war series about 10% more than the wwII series. But that being said This series is excellent and well done and well read.
