Day of Deceit: The Truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Day of Deceit, Robert Stinnett delivers the definitive final chapter on America's greatest secret and our worst military disaster. Drawing on twenty years of research and access to scores of previously classified documents, Stinnett proves that Pearl Harbor was not an accident, a mere failure of American intelligence, or a brilliant Japanese military coup. By showing that ample warning of the attack was on FDR's desk and, furthermore, that a plan to push Japan into war was initiated at the highest levels of the U.S. government, he ends up profoundly altering our understanding of one of the most significant events in American history.

Review:

"Perhaps the most revelatory document of our time." Tom Roeser, Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"It is difficult, after reading this copiously documented book, not to wonder about previously unchallenged assumptions about Pearl Harbor." Richard Bernstein, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"A fascinating and readable book that is exceptionally well presented." The Wall Street Journal

Synopsis:

This controversial book, now in paperback, brings to light devastating evidence that FDR knew of the Japanese plans to attack Pearl Harbor. Includes a new Afterword by the author.
