Pearl Harbor as it’s rarely been viewed before
***READ FREE WITH KINDLE UNLIMITED – BONUS RIGHT AFTER CONCLUSION***
The bombing of Pearl Harbor, in the worlds of President Roosevelt, is truly a “day that will live on in infamy”. We know that it was the day that Japan decided to attack US soil in an effort to dissuade and cripple the United States so they would let up on sanctions and keep out of the war.
We know the stories of the sailors that lived and witness this. We’ve heard their story. But a good reporter knows… there’s always two sides to every story.
What provoked the Japanese to bring the fight to us? Why would they attack a nation, which for the purposes of her citizens, never did anything to hurt them?
To these purposes we look at the attack from the perspective of the Japanese. We see what they viewed as the American death sentence to their commerce. Read about their tragic decision to hit us and hit us hard and what made them choose that course of action. Learn why this tragedy could have been greater if not for concerns from the higher ups.
Pearl Harbor will not be forgotten. Her name lives on in the spirit of the Navy and the memory of the Hawiian people. For the Japanese though, they will also never forget, and maybe always remember their decision.
Comments From Other Readers
“I never really thought about things from this side before. I guess I always thought of the Japanese as backwards or evil. They were really misguided and afraid. I suppose that few would admit to the fear but that’s why they attacked. I love that the author took the time to look at things from another point of view without siding with either. He doesn’t gloss over the roles of either side and I think that’s important.” - Shelly R. (Kansas, United States)
“My grandfather was in the internment camps when he was a child. He never spoke much of it other than that it was a bleak point in his life. I grew up torn between my heritage and my country. This was a great look at my heritage. While I don’t agree with the actions of Japan I do enjoy reading more about what precipitated those event. Truly good read.” Jory I. (California, United States
