At dawn we slept : the untold story of Pearl Harbor by Gordon W Prange( Book )

52 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in English and held by 5,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fifty years after the attack that plunged America into World War II, 'At Dawn We Slept' remains the greatest account of Pearl Harbor ever written. This gripping study scrupulously reconstructs the Japanese attack, from its conception (less than a year before the actual raid) to its lightning execution; and it reveals the true reason for the American debacle: the insurmountable disbelief in the Japanese threat that kept America from heeding advance warnings and caused leaders to ignore evidence submitted by our own intelligence sources. Based on thirty-seven years of intense research and countless interviews, and incorporating previously untranslated documents, 'At Dawn We Slept' is history with the dramatic sweep of a martial epic."

Fading victory : the diary of Admiral Matome Ugaki, 1941-1945 by Matome Ugaki( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long out of print, these wartime diaries of a key admiral of the Imperial Japanese Navy, provide a revealing inside look into the Japanese view of the Pacific War. Matome Ugaki was chief of staff of the Combined Fleet under Admiral Isoroki Yamamoto until both were shot down over Bougainville in April 1943, resulting in Yamamoto's death. He later served as commander of battleship and air fleets, finally directing the kamikaze attacks off Okinawa. Invaluable for its details of the Japanese Navy at war, the diaries offer a running appraisal of the fighting and are augmented by editorial commentary that proves especially useful to American readers eager to see the war from the other side. When first published in 1991, this dairy was hailed as a major contribution to World War II literature as the only firsthand account of strategic planning for the entire war by a Japanese commander. -- Publisher's Description

From the Dust Jacket: December 7, 1941 is the culmination of Gordon Prange's monumental Pearl Harbor trilogy, which has been hailed as a classic work of military history and the definitive study of the day that brought the United States into World War II. December 7, 1941 is a moment, richly detailed chronological account of "the day that will live in infamy" that combines an analysis of the major events and an oral history from the military and civilians who were there. Based on Prange's lifelong, impeccable research as well as on hundreds of interviews with firsthand witnesses, December 7, 1941 is filled with drama, action, and pathos. The events of December seventh are related with the dramatic readability of a novel. Prange served in Japan under General MacArthur after World War II, and the book is enriched with hundreds of extraordinary reminiscences of officers, both Japanese and American, whom Prange interviewed in depth immediately after the war, while their memories of Pearl Harbor were still razor-sharp. December 7, 1941 has the human dimension only oral history can provide. With his major work-the long-awaited final volume of the definitive bestselling trilogy on the attack that catapulted the United States into WWII-Prange, Goldstein, and Dillon have provided us with the ultimate Pearl Harbor story
