Pearl Harbor 1941 : The Day of Infamy (Osprey Military Campaign Series 62)
by Carl Smith.
Sunday December 7, 1941 saw the dawn of modern warfare. Air superiority and surprise led to the shattering of the superior US Pacific fleet in one stroke. The full might of Japanese naval aviation power was hurled against the United States as six aircraft carriers disgorged their full complements in two waves. The attack on Pearl Harbor was either a brilliant manoeuvre by an audacious strategist or unparalleled villainy and deception by a supposedly friendly power. The attack on the home of the US Pacific fleet precipitated the intervention of the United States into WWII, and became a key event in world history.
