Pearl Harbor is in utter chaos after the unexpected third strike by Imperial Japanese Naval Air Forces, ordered into the attack by Admiral Yamamoto. A victory has been achieved, but is it total victory?

Yamamoto is horrified to discover that the Foreign Ministry office of his government has utterly failed in their promise to insure that a proper declaration of war be delivered to America prior to the opening of hostilities. As someone who has spent years in America, Yamamoto perhaps more than any other military man serving His Imperial Majesty knows that America's response, rather than one that might have led eventually to a negotiated settlement, will be instead a bitter push for total war.

Japan's only hope for victory now is to pursue a ruthless and total assault on the remaining American assets in the Pacific region, to hammer the slumbering giant into a willingness to negotiate. But Admiral Halsey is en route to Pearl Harbor for his counterstrike.... And so begins the next installment of this amazing series.

Filled with historical figures - F.D.R., Admiral Halsey, General MacArthur, and a host of well-realized and developed fictional characters - Gingrich and Forstchen have once again established themselves as master craftsmen. A compelling, meticulously-researched saga, Days of Infamy continues the dramatic Pacific War series that began with the New York Times best-selling Pearl Harbor. Download and start listening now!

    " Great alternate history novel. The battle scenes are excellent. "

    " A fun and exciting read. This is Newt and William's sequel to the also very enjoyable Pearl Harbor. That book was mostly setup,dealing with American,British,and especially Japanese culture,attitudes,stratigies,and aims in the run up to the Pearl Harbor attack of Dec 7 1941. This book is about the naval and air battles that took place after the attacks in this altered timeline. The action is intense and very believable,and since we are dealing with events that differ from what happened in our history you have no idea how things are going to turn out. Makes it a real page turner. I guess my only grip,and it is a minor,is that near the end the book falls into the trap of some very predictable sentimentality that I could have done without. Worth a read for all fans of World War II combat. I hope they continue the series and show how they think the rest of the war would have developed from the point at which they leave it here. "

    " This is a fictionalized account of how the war might have started had the Japanese been more aggressive in their attack on Hawaii. "

    " I couldn't wait to read this after finishing Pearl Harbor. The pages brought the real terror of war to life. Thank goodness the Japanese weren't as focused and attuned as these authors! I had to keep reminding myself ...."it didn't really happen this way!" "
