I've met Steven Gilon. He's really a history enthusiast. I read the previous one about Kennedy's assassination and I have to say that one was better than this one; however, it's still a wonderful account of the "Day of Infamy" . FDR was a manipulator. Which I assume all President's are to a degree but he seems a master of it-manipulation. The book digresses into some relationship background between Roosevelt and Eleanor and one of FDR's mistresses which detracts from the history. It's a little long in the tooth but the account of the day is done with such exactness you feel your there watching things going down in the oval office, outside on the streets, etc.. Surprisingly not much is devoted to the attack itself at Pearl. Of course, Gilon outlines it for us but it's really a great study of FDR's ability to manage a crisis. It's a good read. Gilon is an excellent historian and I love these series of 24 hours after a major event. I would suspect 9/11 is not too far behind but it needs more time to ripen.

Dr. Gillon has the unique ability of being able to contextualize historical events for his readers. In this book, Gillon contextualizes FDR's response to the attack on Pearl Harbor, with details of all the events that shaped his reaction to the attack and with insight into FDR's speech to Congress on December 8th, 1941. The book is amazingly well-researched and detailed - highly recommended!

Very interesting and informative. I feel the book was very well researched, however I was somewhat disappointed that it was less than two hundred pages in length.
I would heartily recommend "Roosevelt's Centurions" by Joseph Persico.

GILLON'S book was a pleasant change from the $1.99 books that I have been reading, I found myself looking forward to my next reading session. The author did a great job in describing the administrative decisions by Washington on Dec. 7 & 8. I especially liked the Presidents and his Cabinets reaction as described by witnesses. The book also revealed the fact that FDR's private life was nothing like what most of us imagined.

A nice new book on an interesting subject. A good value. I shall enjoy reading the work. The author basically outlines the history of the deteriorating relations between the US and Japan prior to the outbreak of war, and the immediate reaction of President Roosevelt to the attack on Pearl Harbor.
