Day of lightning, years of scorn : Walter C. Short and the attack on Pearl Harbor by Charles R Anderson( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walter C. Short is remembered as the U.S. Army general who parked his airplanes wingtip to wingtip on open runways at Pearl Harbor, making them easy targets for the Japanese on 7 December 1941. History's harsh indictment of his actions as commander of the Army's Hawaiian department is the result of a series of investigations that placed blame for the disaster on General Short and his Navy counterpart, Adm. Husband E. Kimmel. Other books present Short and Kimmel either as fools or scapegoats for Washington officials attempting to hide their own errors. Here the general emerges as an honorable man who made some mistakes. As the title of this long-overdue biography suggests, a single day undid General Short's exceptional military career, but not his sense of integrity, honesty, and loyalty to the institutions and leaders who damned him. Charles Anderson's balanced portrayal acknowledges that Short bore responsibility for certain charges made against him. At the same time, however, the author provides ample evidence that Short's superiors worked hard to shift the blame from Washington to Hawaii to avoid their own culpability. Anderson's thorough research gives readers a new understanding of the larger issues involved, including the glaring lack of interdepartmental cooperation and coordination. This biography is published in cooperation with the Association of the United States Army.--Adapted from book jacket
