Engaging Story, Great Reading

Though Walter Lord's Day of Infamy is nearly 50 years old it does not feel dated-in fact, if anything it seems fresh because of the sheer amount of first-hand anecdotes which were only available immediately following the war. Lord weaves many compelling stories of American, Japanese and Hawaiian participants of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Tom Parker's reading is excellent, as always. This is a classic that I highly recommend.

Non fiction but every bit as riveting as fiction

Not to be missed in depth account of two terrible days in our history. Dec. 7, the Day of Infamy and its aftermath leading onto the Monday following it. Great introduction into our entry into WWII.
