A Matter of Honor, is a story that needs to be told, every American should know the truth about Adm. Kimmel and how unfairly he was treated after Pearl Harbor. The book is filled with facts and citations of various eye witness statements that make the book have a very textbook feel.
I don't know how else the authors could have gotten all the information out to the public but it is not a very entertaining book because it is not really a story. It is more of a research paper.
I think the authors did an excellent job of dispelling some of the more common conspiracy theories that exist about Pearl Harbor and Roosevelt and stuck to the facts of the case as they pertain to Kimmel.
Anyone who reads this book will have no doubt that Kimmel was treated unfairly and deserved better. And still does deserve better.
A lot of mistakes were made leading up to the surprise attack but they were not all Kimmel's fault and he should not continue to shoulder the blame as he has for the last 75 years. A Matter of Honor will convince even the most ardent skeptic.

A real eye opener. A part of history rarely spoken of. Fantastic companion to other historical texts.
