On December 7, 1941, the Japanese launched an attack against U.S. naval forces stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. But what if the Japanese followed up their air assault with an invasion and occupation of Hawaii? This is the question explored by Harry Turtledove in Days of Infamy, with frightening implications. With American military forces subjugated and civilians living in fear of their conquerors, there is no one to stop the Japanese from using the islands' resources to launch an offensive against America's western coast.

    " Harry Turtledove runs hot and cold with me. Some of his books are ABSOLUTELY brilliant! (Ruled Britania) and some are just idiotic. (Guns of the south, Southerners travel back in time with AK47's to change the civil war outcome. Cmon!) Turtledove should have been beaten for that one. "
