Publisher's Summary

Day of Infamy is Walter Lord's gripping, vivid re-creation of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Sunday, December 7, 1941. The listener accompanies Admiral Nagumo's task force as it sweeps toward Hawaii; looks on while warning after warning is ignored on Oahu; and is enmeshed in the panic, confusion, and heroism of the final attack.

    "Engaging Story, Great Reading"

    Though Walter Lord's Day of Infamy is nearly 50 years old it does not feel dated-in fact, if anything it seems fresh because of the sheer amount of first-hand anecdotes which were only available immediately following the war. Lord weaves many compelling stories of American, Japanese and Hawaiian participants of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Tom Parker's reading is excellent, as always. This is a classic that I highly recommend.

    "Non fiction but every bit as riveting as fiction"

    Not to be missed in depth account of two terrible days in our history. Dec. 7, the Day of Infamy and its aftermath leading onto the Monday following it. Great introduction into our entry into WWII.

    "alonzo"

    The attack on Pearl Harbor was in my view a defining moment in 20th.Century history, it deserves better than this . This is a collection of observations related only to the event, they do little to enhance the long developed aim (of Japan). The attack and its place in the Japanese projected economy, as well as the long term Japanese projected hegamony in South East Asia, appear to br missing in the narrative.
    This should have been a page turner, in my view it fell well short of that
