Just three days before Christmas, Churchill surprised Roosevelt with an unprecedented trip to Washington, where they jointly lit the White House Christmas tree. As the two Allied leaders met to map out a winning wartime strategy, the most remarkable Christmas of the century played out across the globe.
Pearl Harbor Christmas is a deeply moving and inspiring story about what it was like to live through a holiday season few would ever forget.

not quite as advertised
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
would not, unless they knew the real subject. This is NOT about Pearl Harbor, but the politics in late December in Washington. It also poorly connected the events described.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Book just trails off on a certain date
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Narrator was just ok, could have made it more interesting.
Did Pearl Harbor Christmas inspire you to do anything?
not really. as a pacific war history buff, I just moved on.
