Book excerpt: Japanese Zeros appear in the skies over Hawaii and descend upon Pearl Harbor in a devastating attack that cripples the U.S. Navy fleet and airfields. One after another, the islands are conquered and occupied by the Empire of the Sun. In the hands of a merciless enemy, American soldiers in POW camps suffer cruel punishment. Many older Hawaiians of Japanese origin support the invaders - while some of their children want to fight back. But the domination of the Pacific and the submission of those who live there is merely the beginning. With the U.S. military on Hawaii completely subjugated, there is no one to stop the Japanese from using the islands' resources to launch an offensive against America's western coast...

Book excerpt: "Absolutely brilliant! Fast paced and filled with tension and suspense. Every page resonates with the momentous events and great personalities of World War II - and scenes so carefully crafted you feel like you're there. This is a 'must read' for all who look at history and wonder: "What if..." -- Oliver North, Lt. Col., USMC (Ret.), host of War Stories on the Fox News Channel In 2007, bestselling authors Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen launched a new epic adventure series about World War II in the Pacific, with their book Pearl Harbor: A Novel of December 8th, 1941, which instantly rocketed to the New York Times bestseller list. Gingrich and Forstchen's now critically acclaimed approach, which they term "active history," examines how a change in but one decision might have profoundly altered American history. In Pearl Harbor they explored how history might have been changed if Admiral Yamamoto had directly led the attack on that fateful day, instead of remaining in Japan. Building on that promise, Days of Infamy starts minutes after the close of Pearl Harbor, as both sides react to the monumental events triggered by the presence of Admiral Yamamoto. In direct command of the six carriers of the attacking fleet, Yamamoto decides to launch a fateful "third-wave attack" on the island of Oahu, and then keeps his fleet in the area to hunt down the surviving American aircraft carriers, which by luck and fate were not anchored in the harbor on that day. Historians have often speculated about what might have transpired from legendary "matchups" of great generals and admirals. In this story of the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, the notorious gambler Yamamoto is pitted against the equally legendary American admiral Bill Halsey in a battle of wits, nerve, and skill. Days of Infamy recounts this alternative history from a multitude of viewpoints---from President Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill, and the two great admirals, on down to American pilots flying antiquated aircraft, bravely facing the vastly superior Imperial Japanese Navy aircraft. Gingrich and Forstchen have written a sequel that's as much a homage to the survivors of the real Pearl Harbor attack as it is an imaginative and thrilling take on America's entry into World War II. Praise for the first book in the Pacific War Series, Pearl Harbor: "A thrilling tale of American's darkest day." --W.E.B. Griffin

Book excerpt: The #1 New York Times–bestselling account: “There have been many books on Pearl Harbor . . . but none of them have equaled Lord’s” (Stephen E. Ambrose). The Day of Infamy began as a quiet morning on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor. But as Japan’s deadly torpedoes suddenly rained down on the Pacific fleet, soldiers, generals, and civilians alike felt shock, then fear, then rage. From the chaos, a thousand personal stories of courage emerged. Drawn from hundreds of interviews, letters, and diaries, Walter Lord recounts the many tales of heroism and tragedy by those who experienced the attack firsthand. From the musicians of the USS Nevada who insisted on finishing “The Star Spangled Banner” before taking cover, to the men trapped in the capsized USS Oklahoma who methodically voted on the best means of escape, each story conveys the terror and confusion of the bombing raid, as well as the fortitude of those who survived.

Download Day of Infamy, 60th Anniversary PDF by Walter Lord Full Free and published by Henry Holt and Company. This book was released on 2001-05-01 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A special 60th anniversary edition of the bestselling re-creation of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, by the author of A Night to Remember. Sunday, December 7, 1941, was, as President Roosevelt said, "a date which will live in infamy." Day of Infamy is a fascinating account of that unforgettable day's events. In brilliant detail Walter Lord traces the human drama of the great attack: the spies behind it; the Japanese pilots; the crews on the stricken warships; the men at the airfields and the bases; the Japanese pilot who captured an island single-handedly when he could not get back to his carrier; the generals, the sailors, the housewives, and the children who responded to the attack with anger, numbness, and magnificent courage. In piecing together the saga of Pearl Harbor, Lord traveled over fourteen thousand miles and spoke or corresponded with over five hundred individuals who were there. He obtained exclusive interviews with members of the Japanese attacking force and spent hundreds of hours with the Americans who received the blow -- not just the admirals and generals, but enlisted men and families as well. He visited each of the Hawaiian bases attacked and pored over maps, charts, letters, diaries, official files, newspapers, and some twenty-five thousand pages of testimony, discovering a wealth of information that had never before been revealed. Day of Infamy is an inspiring human document and the best account we have of one of the epic events in American history.

Book excerpt: The world is a sad and lost place full of violence and confusion. People are hungry for a spiritual leader, a mystic, a prophet, or perhaps even the return of a Messiah. Sometimes God’s anointed ones are right under our noses, but we don’t even see them. Sometimes they’re simply too small. Often they’re just anonymous, but spiritually endowed people who do great deeds of charity. The ancient sages say that a single person can lift the entire world out of its pit simply by doing small deeds of love. That, in a nutshell, is Malchus One Ear. He claims he lost his ear in the Garden of Gethsemane when Peter cut it off, but Jesus healed it. Malchus is a physical anomaly, an intellectual enigma, and a spiritual paradox all rolled up in a psychotic mystery. He’s also God’s prophet and Messiah in waiting. When a young woman conceives and gives birth to a son, she sees that he is a strange baby. When she can no longer hide the baby in her tenement, she sets him afloat on the East River in New York City. When he is discovered, he is taken to Bellevue Hospital. Who is Malchus and what does he mean to our world?

Book excerpt: December 7, 1941 was one of the single most decisive days of World War II the day that brought the USA into the fight. Six Japanese aircraft carriers disgorged their full complements in two waves on the superior US Pacific Fleet as it lay slumbering in Pearl Harbor. Depending on opposing viewpoints, the attack was either a brilliant maneuver of audacious strategy, or a piece of unparalleled villainy and deception by a supposedly friendly power. This revised edition, containing the latest research on the events of December 7, 1941, reveals several previously unknown aspects of the attack and dispels key myths that have been built up around the fateful day a day, Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared, that would "live in infamy".
